At nearly a decade old, Digby's medium gold-hued vintage wine is fruit- and cream-driven; it's a crowd-pleaser if ever there was one. Peach candy, lemon essential oil, orange blossom and yeast open this highly aromatic bottling. The palate is still remarkably crisp and fresh, juxtaposed by the rich texture and yeasty, autolytic characters. There's lovely length, finishing citrusy and juicy and making another sip an exceptionally easy task. Christina Pickard

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.

These wines are known for their delicate flavors and aromas, with a crisp acidity and a fine mousse.

The climate in Champagne is typically cool and continental, with short, mild summers and long, cold winters. The region’s soils are chalky and limestone-based, which absorb heat during the day and provide good…

Veneto produces more wine, specifically more DOC wine, than anywhere else in Italy. Of all the DOC wines, the whites of Soave and the reds of Valpolicella are the most widely exported and internationally recognized. Garganega is the grape grown in Soave that generally produces neutral, light and easy-drinking wines. Recently, however, because many growers have planted vines on the local volcanic hills, production has resulted in wines with mouthwatering acidity and complex floral components. The Valpolicella DOC lies inland on the coastal plain of Veneto, where the warmer climate infuses the wine with richness that contributes to its high ratings, according to our Veneto Wine Ratings. Corvina is the key grape variety used in all of the reds from the Valpolicella, Bardolino and Amarone della Valpolicella DOCs. It is typically blended with Rondinella and Molinara—varieties that impart the wines…
