Noël Verset Cornas 1985-2006

Noël Verset's wines need no introduction to hard-core fans of the wines of France's northern Rhône Valley, most of whom consider them icons of the region, along with those of Marius Gentaz-Dervieux and Raymond Trollat. As with those two producers, the domain no longer exists, with its vines sold off or passed on to family members from the late-1980s through the early 2000s, making any remaining bottles expensive rarities by now.

2013 Jos. Christoffel Jun. Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett, 92 points

Karl-Joseph Christoffel's 2013 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett is the Mosel at its finest: pure, finely chiseled and unbelievable elegant! It is a tribute to how Riesling blossoms on slate soils. Delicately off-dry, it is my top value pick for Germany in 2013. (JP)
