2015 Domaine Zind Humbrecht, Clos Windsbuhl Pinot Gris 6x75cl

"Golden-tinged yellow. Delicate nose with initially reduced aromas of yellow apple, nectarine and a floral quality that in my experience is not typicol of this wine. Bright, penetrating flavors... similar to the aromas have a brood, diffuse quality on the floral finish. Interestingly, while the 2014 Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl was fairly dry, this is more off-dry, boasting a little less than 13 g/L residual sugar. So it is softer and juicier than usual, and is still a lovely wine, though I personally prefer previous vintages. Honestly, tasting blind, I would never have recognized this as the Clos Windsbuhl, but in my defense, it's the only one since 2003 that was not hit at all by noble rot." 91 pts., Ian d'Agata,

2020 Kumeu River, Estate Chardonnay, Kumeu 3x150cl

"There's a sense of calm to the 2020 Chardonnay Estate, a blend of six different sites. It is mellow, offering a plump cushion of Chardonnay goodness on the midpalate but not becoming heavy nor... opulent, its youthful edge and fresh acidity tying it together into a precise finish. It offers classic subtle Chardonnay characters of Golden Delicious apple, white nectarine and a mere whiff of oak-derived smokiness. Well constructed, satisfying and elegant.

A superb wine from the stable of Denis Durantou from the well-regarded Cotes de Castillon. St-Emilion in style from the limestone soil and the grape mix, as well as the winemaking - Denis also owns Chateau l'Eglise-Clinet in nearby Pomerol.

2019 Chateau Angludet, Margaux 6x75cl

"The 2019 d’Angludet is the first vintage with partial aging in clay amphora (30%); around 35% of the barrels were new. I must confess that I like the aromatics here: macerated red cherries,... crushed strawberry and raspberry fruit, a little earthiness and a hint of leather. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, and clean, fresh fruit that merges into more tertiary, slightly peppery notes toward the finish. Fine." 91 pts., Neal Martin,

2018 Chateau Angludet, Margaux 6x75cl

The 2018 Angludet has a very attractive bouquet of pure blackberry and blueberry fruit, a discreet floral element and glimpses of cassis coming through with aeration. It is delicate but very refined.... The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a little pinched on the entry but gradually fanning out toward the finish, which is detailed and full of tension. One of the best vintages of Angludet that I have tasted in recent years. 91 pts., Neal Martin,
