This time: Chateau de Beaucastel, Jean-Claude Bachelet, Jaboulet Aine and Castello dei Rampolla.

The Chateau de Beaucastel 2017 Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is one of the best white Chateauneuf-du-Pape with nutty and roasted aromas, full-body, mineral, long finish, balance, oily density and extract sweetness. You should drink it young. 18.8/20 points.

If you like modern white Burgundies then Jean-Claude Bachelet 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Sous Le Puits is you wine. It has a lot of blossoms, caramel, toasted notes, phenolic and it is sweetish with full-body, a long finish and balance. The wine is opulent, elegant, precise, clear and very modern with almost Californian style. 18.8/20 points.

The Jaboulet Aine 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Thalabert is very fruity with blackberry, elderberry, eucalyptus, smoked notes, liquorice and lots of fruit. It is very modern and has a full-body, balance and density. 17.5/20 points.

A typical Tuscan wine is the Castello dei Rampolla 2013 Vigna d‘Alceo. The wine is very young and needs aeration. Unfortunately the wine has a little bit of acetone, but also a lot of cherry, full-body, tannin, structure, balance and a medium to long finish. 18/20 points.
