Critic Notes

The 2014 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is a wine with a very distinct and identifiable aromatic personality. Maybe it's the power of suggestion, but the vineyard name Bricco delle Viole says it all. There is a strong floral signature here with pressed blue violets in a leading role. This is a delicate and graceful expression with nuanced aromas and a profound sense of depth. The lighter and more finessed nature of the cool 2014 vintage jibes very well with that central floral theme. Jun 2018, www.robertparker.com

Jean-Marie Fourrier: Embracing The Future, Preserving The Past
A real highlight on our trip to Burgundy this Autumn was a visit to a producer whom I have admired and collected for many years - Jean-Marie Fourrier. The first time I remember being bewitched by his wines was during the 2011 En Primeur tastings. In such an inconsistent vintage where many wines tasted green and astringent, his range of ...

The FINE+RARE 'Four Decades of Barolo' Dinner
Last week fourteen of FINE+RARE’s customers joined us for a very special dinner at Alyn Williams. The theme: Four Decades of Barolo. We’ve been making as much noise as possible about this region of late, and much of this noise has been focussed on the recently released, and quite brilliant, 2010 vintage.  We thought we’d open a few bottles with some ...
