Critic Notes

From the upper part of the southwest-facing part of the potential premier cru, Humbrecht's bright and golden colored 2014 Pinot Gris Heimbourg displays a clear, fresh and even smoky/flinty, really deep and elegant bouquet; there are aromas of super ripe but healthy berries, even shrivelled raisins, a touch of honey and some citrus/grapefruit flavors in the background. Full-bodied, round and elegant, this wine has a piquant, vivacious acidity as well as a good tannin and mineral grip, which structures the lush and fruit-intense palate. The 2014 is a remarkably fine and elegant Pinot Gris that did not ferment fully dry (down to 10.5 grams of residual sugar), but is fully ripe and – despite the fruit fly that caused a very low yield of just 19 hectoliters per hectare – pretty clear, as well as charmingly textured. The finish is long, aromatic and finely structured. Bottled in August 2016 with 12.5% of alcohol, this is a very well balanced and elegant Pinot that should be excellent with food for the next 15 years. Mar 2017, 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 ...
