Coming Up in Wine Advocate Issue 229

Dear Readers,

On Wednesday, March 1st at 12 noon USA EDT, we will be publishing Robert Parker Wine Advocate Issue 229.

This Issue is truly about offering something for everyone, featuring 24 articles that house nearly 3,000 reviews of wines from 11 different countries. Just some of the highlights include reports on the latest releases from Brunello di Montalcino, Alsace, the Mosel, Ribera del Duero, Toro, East Coast USA, New Zealand and the Sonoma Coast. We’re also checking in on blasts from the past, including retrospective tastings of the top 2006 Northern Rhônes and the 2007 Southern Rhônes. And we’ve got some exciting producer-specific features, including a Chateau Valandraud vertical, the new releases from Powell & Son from Barossa in Australia, and the 2014 releases from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.
