Sally's Picks for This Spring

While the stock market is still stormy with continued volatile trading, the HK wine industry remains highly favorable! With several wine auctions happening in spring, group diners relaxed, and bars were reopening, the demand for wine consumption is perpetually rising. So this week, I have featured an array of wines worth knowing better. And, amid the dazzling world of fine wines, you may have omitted these just right bottles for any occasion.

First time bottled in magnum, Rare Millesime 1998 newly arrives in HK. Whether for gifting or aperitif, this will be an impressive bottle of the night. If you’re looking for a case of wines for a group meeting, try Moreau Naudet and Claude Dugat. Both show a balanced and integrated profile that is apt for every palate. Finally, consider Domaine Fourrier and Paul Pernot for a more complex and advanced drinking experience.

In need of something outside Burgundy? We’ve got you covered with Valentini, Thierry Allemand, or Keller that fit your budget.

Thierry Allemand Cornas Chaillot 2008

"Superb Cornas from a challenging year.  Chaillot is made from younger vines (40 years or less) compared to Reynard, fruit-driven, delicate and elegance Syrah with firm tannin, no lack of intensity and complexity.  Last case in stock, don’t miss this star!" ~93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Domaine Fourrier Gevrey Chambertin Combe Aux Moines 1er Cru VV 2018

Rose petals, earthy notes and plummy characters… iconic aromas you can expect from Fourrier.Firm and racy, one of the finest Combe Aux Moines.
 
“A very fresh and relatively cool nose offers up notes of wild red and dark berries, newly turned earth and sauvage wisps. Here too there is excellent volume to the attractively textured middle weight flavors that exhibit focused power on the mouthcoating, serious and very firmly structured finale. This is built-to-age and a wine that is going to need it.” ~91-93 points, Burghound.

Explosive nose of berries, sweet spice and game! Claude Dugat Gevrey is absolutely charming and seductive.Medium to full-bodied, pure and vibrant with long finishing.A perfect pair for a Chinese meal that you won’t disappoint.
 
“Once again, that has produced a portfolio of remarkably pure, vibrant and impeccably balanced wines that number among the very finest in the Côte de Nuits. Several 2018s, revisited from bottle, showed superbly, too, making me glad to have a few bottles in my private cellar.”  ~92 points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

Keller Dalsheimer Hubacker Riesling Trocken Grosses Gewachs 2016

Lovely aromas of bright lemon, pineapple and somehow durian. The signature Riesling-petrol flavour is slowly being unfolded by around 5 years of bottle age. The finish was breathtaking with all those textbook mineral characters, almost like tasting a metal spoon with all those citrus fruit characters lingerings…

"Quarry dust, bruised apple skin, zesty fresh lemon and flowering rosemary penetrate the nostrils. Stony, alkaline components on the firm palate are rather hard-edged, but there is a compensatory abundance of bright lemon and apple juiciness as well as a mouthwatering suffusion of mineral salts. The finish is strikingly penetratin and persistent featuring lemon peel, rosemary, salt and stone. This is a Keller Hubacker of unusual animation and transparency. I'll be very surprised if it does not significantly outlive its 2015 counterpart, not to mention prove consistently more fun to drink."~92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Valentini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2013

Impossible to miss this terrific Montepulciano d'Abruzzo from Valentini! The wine is only produced and released when quality is fully up to standard. Garnet color reflected in the glass, sensational dark fruit note, hint of smoke, tobacco, and licorice. Powerful and energetic.
