Top Picks from Vintages' March 18th Release
Domaine Roger Luquet Pouilly-Fuissé 2004 (Burgundy)
Straw colour; vanilla and pineapple nose; medium-bodied, beautifully crafted wine with pineapple and citrus flavours that linger on the palate; great balance. *****
Castello Vicchiomaggio "Agostino Petri" Chianti Classico Riserva 2001 (Tuscany)
Dense purple colour; cedar, smoke, plums and vanilla mingle in the bouquet; medium-bodied, elegant, well balanced, firmly structured, dry, cherry flavour. ****½
Yannick Amirault "La Mine" 2003 (Loire)
Dense purple, cedar, blackcurrant; medium-to-full-bodied, richly extracted, chunky cassis flavour; full on the palate; firmly structured. The best St. Nicolas Bourgueil I have tasted. *****
