Coming Up in Wine Advocate Issue 226
On Wednesday, August 31st at 12 noon USA EDT, we will be publishing Wine Advocate Issue 226. We have an incredible line-up of regions and wines being featured this issue, making it nearly impossible to list the highlights without listing all 26 articles. To name but a few, there are some cracking North and Central Coasts California reviews by Robert Parker and Jeb Dunnuck. Over in France, Neal Martin has been from one end of Burgundy (Chablis) to the other (Beaujolais), and managed a side trip to Bordeaux. Luis Gutierrez has been minding the gap in Rioja, while Monica has been traipsing ‘round the hallowed Brunello di Montalcino vines. Stephan has remained on home-turf in Germany, but our wayward critic, Mark Squires, has gone all exotic in Israel, Greece, Portugal and, er, New Jersey (yup!). I’ve still been scouting about the ancient vines of South Australia. And I’m excited to report that our newest critic – Liwen Hao – has just penned our very first official Sake report!
Weighing in at a whopping 4,981 new wine reviews, here is what we have in store for subscribers in our End of August Issue:

From Wine Journal
I think discoveries—of anything—should be as much about the sharing of journeys behind those discoveries as they are about unveiling that recently unearthed treasure.
