This feels quite complete and balanced, with good ripeness while keeping the balance and poise.

SAM-1452. 15 FAMILIA ZUCCARDI CONCRETO ALTAMIRA MALBEC (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Parker 94: 'The second vintage of this unoaked, groundbreaking Malbec, the 2015 Concreto Malbec was produced with grapes from Paraje Altamira that fermented in cement vats with indigenous yeasts (a constant in Zuccardi nowadays) and matured in concrete vats--hence the name--until it was bottled in December 2015. Here they use grapes that only come from parts of their vineyards that have less than 20 centimeters of soil and the calcium carbonate content is the highest they have, as they want this to be pure expression of chalk. The nose is a little reticent, not explosive, a little backward, transmitting a sense of seriousness and harmony. But, the palate is electric, you really feel like you're licking the limestone-covered stones that you have in the vineyards. The nose comes back slowly after time in the glass, with a cocktail of flowers and wild herbs, what you smell when you walk the countryside, especially after it has rained. This is a noteworthy follow up to the groundbreaking first vintage of this wine, possibly with one extra degree of precision and clarity, ending with a dry, dusty sensation, avoiding sweetness at all cost. This is all texture and salinity. Maybe not for all, but I loved it. Drink 2017-2023. $38.'

SAM-1454. 18 BODEGA COLOME AUTENTICO CALCHAGUI VALLEY MALBEC (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Tasting Panel 94; Vinous 93: ‛Bright ruby. Pungent, high-toned aromas of blackberry, minerals and licorice. Thick and mouthfilling but leavened by terrific penetrating acidity. The dark berry, wild herb, licorice and chalky mineral flavors are complemented by a chocolatey ripeness. Sweet, plush tannins saturate the entire palate, with the finish displaying explosive length. Very strong, very pure and very smooth; expressive and unique. The Davalos family, owners of Bodega Tacuil, also owned Colome before selling the property to Donald Hess in 2001. (this wine, made without any oak contact, represents a tribute to the old RD bottling of Bodega Tacuil). Drink now-2028.‛

SAM-1458. 18 DOMINIO DEL PLATA CRIOS MENDOZA TORRONTES (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Vinous 90: ‛Very pale, bright silver. Very subtle, fresh scents of lime blossom and orange peel. This inexpensive Torrontes stands out for its inner-mouth tension, dryness and salty minerality, partly due to the strong calcaire influence of some fruit from vines in Altamira (about 50% of the blend). Notes of citrus peel, menthol and licorice carry well on the finish. Susana Balbo told me that she likes ‛the greenness, orange peel and flowers‛ added by Torrontes grown in Mendoza, which she describes as more elegant than the Cafayate version. $15.‛

SAM-1485. 14 MATETIC CORRALILLO SAN ANTONIO VALLEY SYRAH (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Parker 91+: ‛The first Syrah I tasted was the 2014 Corralillo Syrah, which is sourced from two hillside parcels planted on granitic soils with differing clay components, both biodynamically farmed. It fermented in open vats with different degrees of destemming, crushing and full clusters, but always with indigenous yeasts. The wine was transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic and completed an elevage of 14 months before it was bottled. Both Syrahs were quite closed at first and needed some time to open up, so decanting in advance might be a good idea. Even so, the nose is rather shy, and the aromas are subtle. This is consistent with the house style, as the wines are more about the palate; and they are more about the place than the different varieties but with the logical varietal character in the background. It has good freshness and tasty flavors, with very fine tannins. $26.‛

Wine & Spirits 90: 'Michael Hope added this vineyard in Donnybrook, south of Perth, to his stable of vineyards on the opposite side of the continent in the Hunter Valley. This wine's cool dark fruit-- from blackberry liqueur to currants and plum skin-- reminded one taster of swimming in quarry-cold water. While the fruit is simple, there's a lot going on structurally underneath, with tarry tannins and pointed acidity. An intriguing take on shiraz from Western Australia. $18.'

Leflaive has since passed away, but the couple had hired Sylvain Potin, who continues to farm the Demeter certified property. The grolleau vines range from 60 to 90 years old, growing in silty clay over tuffeau, and the ripe fruit of the 2015 took this wine to a friendly sort of beauty from what is often a gruff grape. It's full of wild-blackberry flavors and sweet tobacco notes, with a structure that feels delicate and lacy for a wine of its dark riches. $57.'

Wine Spectator 93; Wine & Spirits 93: 'Along with his father, Yves, Arnaud Lambert has managed the vineyards at the Chateau de Breze since 2009. His domaine wines come from 50 acres in Breze and another 50 in Saint Cyr en Bourg. This is a fascinating wine from vines planted in 1965 on a cool northeast-facing hillside where a thin layer of sandy topsoil covers the limestone bedrock. He ferments half of the lot in old foudres, the other half in barriques (15 percent new). The result is both ornate and invigorating, a crunchy chenin that's so dry it will make you thirsty for more. The freshness comes in waves of orange, the richness in notes of hazelnuts and almonds. Age will allow its intensity to mellow. $40.'
