Wine: 2013's best values

These memorable value wines also provide a glimpse of the future.

The three most memorable value wines I drank this year also provide a glimpse of the future, said Elin McCoy in Bloomberg.com. “All signal what’s hot in today’s wine world—and where it’s going in 2014.”

2010 Domaine Louis Claude Desvignes Morgon Javernières ($30). As burgundy prices hit the stratosphere, I’ve been finding hidden gems in Beaujolais, like this “gulpably delicious” Morgon.

2011 Vigno by Garage Wine Co. ($35). Upstart winemakers in Chile’s Maule region have joined forces to create “Vigno”—essentially a new appellation. “Full of lively dark fruit and licorice,” this is the best Vigno so far.

2012 Abbazia di Novacella Kerner ($19). The best source for today’s wine values? “Oddball” grapes, like the hybrid called kerner. My bargain of the year is this Italian white, which offers a “live-wire fruity tang.”
