Bodega Godeval Godello Blanco 'Cepas Velhas' 2018

Spain

"Firm and shapely, this white shows power and elegance. The polished texture carries lively flavors of grapefruit, quince, tarragon and flint. Electric acidity gives this energy. Harmonious and long. Drink now through 2026." 94 points, Value wine of the Week The Wine Spectator No.17 Top 100 Wines of The Year 2020 Wine Spectator
This is a lovely Godello, from old vines and extended aging on its lees.
Honey, lime, pineapple and a touch of salinity on the nose.
Weighty, textural, creamy and rich with pineapple, lime, spice a minerally stony finish. Long, complex and quite delicious. Think rich white Burgundy crossed with a zesty dry Riesling from Alsace. Develops beautifully in the glass, nectarine and grapefruit join the show after a while, and this would be a terrific food wine.

Bodegas Borsao 'Zarihs' Syrah 2016

Spain

A powerful high altitude Syrah from Spain - made by Aussie winemaker Chris Ringland.
The 2016 Zarihs, which, if you read the name back to front, would tell you what grape it is, has abundant notes of smoked bacon and fried corn, giving it a savory profile. It has abundant smoky and toasty notes reminiscent of incense, cigar ash and cold bonfire. The palate is full-bodied, the wine is ripe with 15% alcohol and there are plenty of oak-related flavors and a creamy texture from the oak and alcohol. Forty percent of the volume spent 12 months in new American oak barrels, which explains the abundant vanilla and coconut notes. For fans of the style. I'd try it with barbecued ribs." Luis Gutierrez Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate28

"This red marries the ripe fruit and toasty oak of the international style with a savory, rustic character. A thick, polished texture, supported by well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity, carries dark plum, black pepper, soy sauce and loamy earth flavors that are seamless and long. Drink now through 2032" 92 pts No.27 Top 100 Wine Spectator Wines of The Year 2020

Bollinger La Grande Année 2012

France

"This goes from zero to 60 right out of the gate, with an intense spine of acidity driving tightly meshed flavors of crushed black currant, ground coffee, candied grapefruit peel and toasted almond. The profile expands on the palate, carried by the fine, raw silk–like mousse. Richly aromatic and expressive from start to lasting, spiced finish. Disgorged July 2019. Drink now through 2037.

Clos i Terrasses 'Laurel' Priorat 2018

Spain

"The second wine here and one that is easier to drink, the 2018 Laurel was produced with fruit from the younger vines, a couple of barrels that are declassified from Clos Erasmus and the Cabernet Sauvignon, more or less 70% Garnacha and 15% each Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. It has good ripeness and still a pH of 3.3. It fermented mostly in oak vats and 2,000-liter concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and matured for 18 months in 20,000-liter oak and concrete vats, second use barriques and some clay amphorae. It's a bright translucent ruby color and has a perfumed and delicate nose with notes of orange peel and flowers; this is the most elegant and ethereal vintage of Laurel as far as I can remember, with red rather than black fruit and a kind of cranberry quality. The palate is medium-bodied, textured and fluid, with subtleness, balance and very fine tannins. The oak is perfectly integrated, and the wine is easy to drink, approachable and very pleasurable right now. It's a fresh vintage with energy and finesse, quite different from previous vintages. I love it. " 96 pts Luis Gutierrez Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I had a bottle in December and it is spectacular ! Dark and brooding with such perfume and fruit.

F X Pichler Riesling Unendlich Smaragd 2019

Austria

"An extraordinary dry riesling with a breathtaking interplay of extremely concentrated, peachy fruit and lightning-bright minerality. But the most amazing thing about it is the impression of weightlessness that goes right through the wine into the delicate finish. Drink or hold." 100 pts James Suckling Top 100 wines 2020

Massolino Barolo 2016

Italy

"A stream of pure, juicy cherry fruit is at the heart of this red, along with mineral, tobacco and wild herb notes. Firm and tightly wound, with a matrix of dense, refined tannins for support. All the elements are in the right proportions, this just needs time. Best from 2023 through 2045." 95 pts No.7 Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of The Year 2020

Remelluri Rioja Blanco 2017

Spain

es Suckling

"Super white with dried-apple, peach, stone and mineral aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied with layers of really complex, ripe fruit and bright acidity. Undertones of cream and nougat. Seamless texture. Rioja’s answer to grand cru Burgundy. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." 98 pts Top 100 Wines 2020 James Suckling

Schloss Johannisberg Riesling Spatlese 'Grünlack' 2019

Germany

"What do you say about a wine that almost literally knocks you off your chair? All the flowers and fruits of the tropics, but so delicate and refined that you can hardly get a grip on it. Such brilliance and such precise balance enables this medium-sweet riesling to defy effortlessly the rules of the category and confidently swim directly against the current of wine fashion. Supernatural freshness at the finish. Taste this before you die! Drink or hold." 100pts No.2 James Suckling Top 100 Wines 2020

Tabali 'Talinay Pai' Pinot Noir 2018

Chile

"The 2018 Talinay Pai Pinot Noir is a new Pinot Noir from their Talinay vineyard, though the name is still not 100% finalized. It was produced with grapes from two massal selections from Vosne-Romanée and Gevrey-Chambertin in Burgundy that were planted ungrafted and with a very high density of 12,500 plants per hectare on a steep slope (30%) inside the Talinay estate vineyard. It's a unique 1.15 hectares of vines that were planted in 2012, and the first commercial wine was produced in 2018. It fermented with 40% full clusters with native yeasts and matured in used French oak barrels for 12 months. The wine is 12.5% alcohol and has very good freshness. It has a meaty, characterful nose that is complex and nuanced, with red fruit and a spicy touch. The palate is truly mineral and austere, with deep flavors and super tasty finish. This goes straight to the premier league of Pinot Noir form Chile. It's an impressive debut, truly spectacular and with a completely different personality, keeping the Talinay saltines and austerity with added complexity and elegance. It breaks the mold. Bravo!

Viña Zorzal Wines 'Punto de Fuga Corral del Mate' Navarra Garnacha 2018

Spain

One of the Top 100 Wine Discoveries 2020 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate.
"The Punto de Fuga range is a joint venture between Viña Zorzal Wines and Matías Michelini from Argentina, with the idea to produce wines from great terroirs of the world—Navarra, Tupungato (Mendoza), Bugohondo (Gredos), Cafayate (Salta), perhaps Getaria, and others... The 2018 Punto de Fuga Corral del Mate is the first in this series, a wine they consider defined by emotion, and the bottles are going to be dressed with labels that carry their true electrocardiograms! This was produced with Garnacha from the paraje El Corral de los Altos in the village of Fitero, a different plot from other wines from the same zone they bottle. This comes from 0.53 hectares, with some individual plants that have mutated to Garnacha Gris, fermented with 100% full clusters in small 1,000-liter vats and then matured in two used 500-liter oak barrels for two years. This has a different aromatic profile from the other wines from this paraje; there is an iron-like touch (blood too) that transported me to the Northern Rhône (think Côte-Rôtie), making it the wilder and more different Garnacha in the current lineup. It clearly transcends the variety. It has great balance and all the ingredients to be long-lived. It was bottled in March 2020, with 1,300 bottles produced.

Weingut Brundlmayer Zobinger Heligenstein Riesling 'Alte Reben' 2018

Austria

From vines planted between the 1920s and 1960s, the 2018 Riesling Zöbinger Ried Heiligenstein Alte Reben 1ÖTW offers a spectacular, deep and concentrated yet clear, refined and spicy bouquet of crushed stones, herbs, coffee beans and ripe bright fruits with notes of fresh lemon juice. This is a great mix of mineral purity and finesse with complexity and freshness on both nose and palate! The mouth is dense and complex, crystalline, refined and salty; the character is coolish, elegant and compact, with great precision and intensity; and the firm structure is mineral/phenolic. This old-vines Heiligenstein is a spectacular amalgam of finesse, mineral purity, crushed salts and lemons. Very long and full of promises. 13% alcohol.
