Critic Notes

Candied brown spices and citrus peel along with litchi, banana oil, and smoked meat in the nose of the Zind-Humbrecht 2007 Gewurztraminer Goldert usher in a strikingly creamy palate that no doubt reflects the low acidity here (unusual by vintage standards) and introduces quince preserves and nougat to the already rather confectionary array of flavors on display. Precisely the wine’s creaminess and sweet personality held keep its 15% alcohol from burning, although it leaves my lips slightly numb. In theory a powerful, rich Goldert like this should age well for 15 or more years, and I have had a few great, old-fashioned, dry Gewurztraminer from vintages like 1967, 1959, or 1953 that no doubt harbored 15% alcohol. As in so many instances among the 2007 Zind-Humbrecht non-Rieslings, I’d simply caution to regularly monitor the wine in your cellar. But for the foreseeable future, I would rather drink the village-level Gueberschwihr bottling. Apr 2010, www.robertparker.com

Brunello di Montalcino – The Young Minds of Montalcino
Trying to reach Sangiovese’s true potential in Montalcino Sangiovese, like Pinot Noir, is very much susceptible to over-cropping and in recent years has been used and abused by many winemakers to the detriment of its true varietal profile. Sangiovese has the potential to produce wines with the same textural brilliance as some of the world’s best Pinot Noir; it can ...
