2014 Bordeaux: It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over

After a series of lackluster vintages, Bordeaux comes through with shining colors. The best 2014s offer exquisite aromatics, finely sculpted fruit and polished, silky tannins, all signatures of a late-ripening year. There is little doubt 2014 is the finest Bordeaux vintage since 2010.

2013 Weingut Leitz Rüdesheimer Klosterlay Riesling Kabinett, 90 points

Seductive aromas of peach, guava and sweet herbs. Delicate tropical fruits and saline minerality brighten the palate. With its subtle complexity and spicy finish, this is one of the finest off-dry Kabinetts of the vintage. (JP)

One question that I am often asked is whether Riesling is better dry or sweet? The answer is seldom black or white. This is not to say that it is about shades of grey, but rather that Riesling is one of the few varieties that excels in more than one discipline.
