The Interim Issue is here
, and with it, over 600 tasting notes from regions including the Napa Valley, New South Wales, Montepulciano and Burgundy.
Our new reviewer, William Kelley, makes his Wine Advocate debut with his first installment of “Up From the Cellar,” featuring a range of recently tasted Burgundies from vintages 1934 to 2014. “Famous names such as the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Jean-Marc Roulot rub shoulders with unheard of producers and even several domaines that no longer exist.”
Two wines from his report were among the top-rated wines of the Issue. Here, the top five:
“If this can survive for 20 years in the cellar, then it will be perfection itself.”
“It has to be one of the best recent vintages of Único, for me clearly better than 2005.”
“On the palate, the wine is silky, cool and controlled, displaying incredible textural finesse, bottomless depth and a long, sapid and penetrating finish.”
“The 2014 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières looks set to rank as one of Jean-Marc Roulot's all-time greats, and while it is still youthful, its incredible potential is already clear to see.”
“This is a benchmark Preuses, beautifully defined by its terroir.”
