The 2013 Red Burgundies

Two thousand thirteen, which featured the latest harvest in decades, was yet another challenging, stressful growing season that would have been a washout a generation ago, yet this very cool vintage yielded many wonderfully vibrant, perfumed, transparent wines that should please lovers of classic Burgundy.

Miani saurint   vinous

2009 Miani Sauvignon Saurint

Miani’s 2009 Sauvignon Saurint is in great shape today. Intense varietal notes emerge from the bouquet, followed by apricot pit, succulent peach, smoke and mint as this beautifully resonant, large-scaled Sauvignon shows off its class.
