  1. Charles Heidsieck Rose 2006
    Charles Heidsieck Rose 2006
    Heidsieck's 2006 Brut Rosé Vintage offers good immediacy and plenty of intensity, both of which make it quite appealing. Still a bit tight, the 2006 could use another year or more in bottle to soften. Although light in color, the 2006 packs a pretty serious punch. Hints of orange zest, chalk and white pepper add an attractive upper register on the finish. With time in the glass, the 2006 softens nicely, hinting at a bright future. Disgorged: October 28, 2014.

  2. Felsina Fontalloro IGT 2006
    Felsina Fontalloro IGT 2006

    The 2006 Fontalloro is much more sweet and open than the firmer Rancia. Enticing, expressive aromatics lead to an expansive core of fruit. Round, finessed tannins give the wine an additional level of polish. Today the Fontalloro is fleshier and more ready than the Rancia. There is superb purity to the fruit and wonderful overall balance. Tar, smoke, licorice, and grilled herbs come to life on the finish. Fontalloro is made from vineyards in both the Chianti Classico and Chianti Colli Senesi appellations. Simply put, this is a great, majestic Fontalloro. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.

    If you were to cut proprietor Giuseppe Mazzocolin’s veins the man would bleed Sangiovese, such is his passion for Tuscany’s most important native grape. Mazzocolin has a terrific set of new releases on his hands. The 2006s are glorious and benefit from a warm growing season that also saw good alternation of day and evening temperatures before the grapes got a final kick of heat that informs the wines. In 2007, I have only tasted the Chianti Classico so far, but if that wine is indicative, Felsina could have another superb vintage in store for fans of this venerable property. So far 2007 looks to be a vintage of ripe wines made in a more generous, if early maturing style, than the firmer 2006s. Not only are Felsina’s wines magnificent, they also remain exceedingly fairly priced in relative terms. Mazzocolin deserves much credit and support from readers for his consumer-friendly approach, especially in these challenging times. ANTONIO GALLONI

  3. Domaine Beaumont Morey Staint Denis 1er Millandes 2006
    Domaine Beaumont Morey Staint Denis 1er Millandes 2006
    Les Millandes is below Clos Saint-Denis, the grand cru. The vines are very old and the wine is the most structured and rich of the Moreys we produce. During the winter of 1984-1985 it was very cold, -27C. A large part of the vines died and my father told me to replant the whole vineyard since it was old anyway. But I said that I would only replace the vines that had died, so I replanted 30-35 percent. HIERRY BEAUMONT, http://www.bourgogne-info.eu

  4. Deutz William Deutz 2006
    Deutz William Deutz 2006
    Full body, ultra-fine bubbles. Gorgeous finish." James Suckling

    Powerful, bright and tightly-wound, the 2006 Brut William Deutz is built on a core of serious energy." Antonio Galloni

    "finely meshed Champagne, with racy acidity providing a vibrant frame." Wine Spectator
    Powerful, bright and tightly-wound, the 2006 Brut William Deutz is built on a core of serious energy. White flowers, lemon oil, pears, smoke, slate, lime and mint all give the 2006 notable tension and brightness. This is another wine that will require patience. Today, the 2006 is salivating and decidedly taut. The future looks bright.

    Chateau d'Yquem 2006 375ml

    PRE ARRIVAL - DUE EARLY 2022
    While no surprise here, this wine, which will be bottled in 2009, is certainly this estate's greatest effort since their 2001. It completely outclasses everything from the appellation, but even when you're number one, that's often hard to do. This light gold wine offers up a sensational smorgasbord of aromas including huge honeyed pineapple and other caramelized tropical fruit flavors, massive richness, and a viscous, unctuous texture with the oak beautifully integrated. The wine has enough acidity to buttress its full-bodied mouthfeel, but this is not by any means the sweetest or most alcoholic of the d'Yquems I have tasted. In fact, in the range of d'Yquems, this is a powerful wine, but it is one built more on finesse and elegance, a la the 1988. Nevertheless, this wine will prove to have 50+ years of longevity. The finish, the mid-palate, the sensation of looking at a skyscraper of Semillon with a small dosage of Sauvignon, is impressive. Like all of the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes, one can drink this young, but the nuances and complexities really don't emerge for at least a decade, especially in the case of a wine such as this.
