Critic Notes

Oberto's 2010 Barolo is a gorgeous entry-level offering. Juicy red cherries, plums, mint and cinnamon lift from the glass in a supple, fragrant Barolo to drink now and over the next few years. The Barolo is made from four parcels in La Morra, and is aged in neutral oak. Sweet floral and cinnamon notes reappear on the finish. The 2010 is perfumed, gracious and full of near-term appeal. <B>Drink: 2014 - 2018</b>

Andrew Jefford - Burgundy 2018
Thanks to Andrew Jefford for sharing his Vintage overview first published on the Wine Scholar Guild website. Andrew (similarly to many wine makers we have spoken to) believes the Cote de Beaune white wines are outstanding in 2018 (4.5 vintage) and almost as good as the universally praised red wines throughout the Cote d'Or (5 vintage).
