About

96

Though 2015 is widely regarded as a superior vintage, the top wines of 2014 are magnificent. Alselmo Mendes ferments expressoes in used 400 liters French oak barrels, where the wine ages for nine months, enriched by stirring of the lees. There's an ease to the wine that's remarkable. Executive Editor Tara Q. Thomas described it as tasting like "a little juice that flows over the edge of the tart pan and caramelizes but doesn't burn." It has the scent of fresh-cut apples and the taste of salt baked fruit-peach and apricot flavors that melt into a mouthwatering finish. Lovely.
