If the 1990 became a cult favorite and the 1995 enjoyed sudden celebrity from a sterling review from the incredibly sharp David Schildknecht, then the 1997 may turn out to be the most impressive one to date.

If Volnay had a Grand Cru, many Burgundy experts say it would be Les Caillerets. The profile of Les Caillerets is one of tension-filled fineness and crystal clear elegance. The light-reflective pebbles that give the site its name also lend a deep mineral character to the wines. These are wines about minerality, finesse, purity of flavor - they are direct and defined and can have almost forceful mineral spines, yet Volnay is always subtle.

Lauer's Senior is one of the most authentic, personality-filled Rieslings. It has a beautiful clarity and simplicity in poise and presentation. As always, our advice is to stock up.

I can say without the slighted exaggeration that this is one of the world's great, singular wines.

La Bota's #50 marks the 3rd release of this old, single barrel Manzanilla. It's a wine that's released infrequently, something like every two years and in tiny quantities. It quickly disappears from the market.

The 2007 Hermitage Blanc Ex Voto delivers an outrageous concentration and layered complexity. There's irresistible suggestions of white truffles, exotic spices and a trail of finely crushed rocks that offer a beautiful back drop to the wine's clear stone fruits. I strongly encourage you to check out a bottle soon and watch its head spinning evolution in the glass, but you should also stash at least a couple of bottles away to watch it gain in depth over the next couple of decades.

Keller's Kirschspiel can be summed up in one word: mineral. It's razor sharp, with a form that is so agile and seamless. Beautiful high-toned fruit (lemon, lime zest), astounding clarity (you can smell the limestone) and incredible grip.

The 2011 vintage in the Northern Rhône accentuates the elegance of Côte-Rôtie and Levet's finely balanced style. The 2011 Chavaroche is really lovely in its finesse, poise and bright clear fruit and floral characteristics.

We buy Christ's Gelber Muskateller every year and the 2013 may be my favorite one to date. 2013 is shaping up to be a really strong vintage in Austria, quite likely the best since 2007. Christ Gelber Muskateller showcases what makes 2013 so impressive. There's a beautiful tension, minerality and clarity to the wines.

The heart of Gatinois is an exceptional terroir. They are based in Aÿ, which is indisputably one of the great Grand Cru villages of Champagne. This is Pinot country and the wines of Aÿ boast plenty of red fruited muscle, but above all Aÿ stands out for its class and breeding.

Montée de Tonnerre is a 1er Cru that can rival many Grand Crus. Stylistically, it's reminiscent of Les Clos: epic in scale, monumental in its architecture and delivering power with a profound level of finesse.
