Rare wine isn’t always the most expensive wine. Monfortino isn’t exactly clogging the streets, but Taurasi with a good amount of age is really not easy to find. And older De Conciliis wines (also Aglianico, as in Taurasi) should be incredible treats. “They” don't call Aglianico “the Nebbiolo of the south” for nothing...
Decanted for 5 hours: pale rim, nice bright core; the nose floral, tar and cocoa — tight; on the palate ripe black cherry, tannic / chewy, dense — lots of extract; very full bodied but balanced; great finish — a burst of fruit at the end that reminds me of the La Tache ‘peacock’s tail’ — at any rate a rare phenomenon. After 72 hours: the wine has really opened up — all of the elements are more evident; it all marries together beautifully — this is clearly a great wine — one for the record books. JW
Always a personal favorite, Haut Lieu Sec is one of the more approachable young Vouvrays from this now famous Domaine. From south-facing vineyards on rich clay and limestone soil, the wine is raised in a combination of tank and old foudres with native yeast fermentations. A delicate vintage for this wine, the nose offers pretty notes of honeysuckle and wildflower honey, white, fleshy stone fruits and lemon curd. The palate is almost totally dry and, again, quite lacy and fresh for Huet with flavors of apple and honey. Likely a better candidate to drink now than to hold, this wine sings alongside fresh scallops simply prepared. -msb
