2013: Parker 94: 'John Kongsgaard told me that when the unfiltered Chardonnay from Newton was first launched in the early 1980s, the fruit came entirely from what is now the Judge Vineyard of Kongsgaard. No wonder that wine was so spectacular in those days. It also had an incredible aging curve as well. This wine continues to be a strong effort. The 2013 Chardonnay Unfiltered exhibits notes of white peach, honeysuckle and some brioche in a medium to full-bodied, lusciously fruity, rich, complex and full style. It doesn't have the minerality of the old days of the early 1980s, but this is a brilliant Chardonnay, representing one of Napa's finest efforts.'

FR-2188. 11 COTES DU ROUSSILLON VILLAGES LE SABINA, CLOS DEL REY (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Parker 91: 'The tank-rendered 2011 Cotes du Roussillon Sabina -- bottled already in late 2012 (though some U.S. markets are still offering the outstanding 2010) -- as usual favors Grenache in a show of deeply rich yet vivaciously juicy black raspberry fruit whose purity, fine-grain and buoyancy just as much as any flavor nuances that surround it, is a tribute to the outstanding opportunity afforded by high-altitude mingling of schist and chalk-rich clay. And the nuances: sassafras, licorice, and beet root, as well as suggestions of peat, pencil lead, iodine, and salt that inform a mouthwateringly persistent finish. Expect this outstanding value to perform admirably through at least 2017.'

Finally, an Alsace muscat back in the market! The Hoyts of Leelanau Cheese Company near Black Star Farms, makers of Michigan's premiere raclette, have been after me to find this dry, aromatic wine, as they feel it's an ideal companion to their product. Alsace's winegrowers plant both muscat a petit grains and muscat ottonel, as these flower, set fruit, and ripen at different periods, providing an insurance policy against inclement weather and making for a more complex wine. Ideal with asparagus too. This is a telling example of the uniqueness that is ottonel. Abundant and fresh and cool and expressive. Mineral./ Suave, intense, entire citrus and rose and spice perfumes. 94/100.
