F&W's Ray Isle and Megan Krigbaum reveal the best bottles they've tasted this month.

Executive Wine Editor Ray Isle's Picks:

2012 Massican Annia ($28)
On a trip to Napa Valley, I drank this subtle local version of an aromatic northern-Italian white while waiting for friends at St. Helena's Press restaurant.

2011 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Montrachet ($3,200)
I was lucky enough to taste this legendary white wine at the DRC's annual vintage tasting in New York. And if my Powerball number pays off, I might even buy a bottle.

 

Senior Wine Editor Megan Krigbaum's Picks:

2012 Domaine la Montagnette Signargues Côtes du Rhône ($12)
I happened upon this wine at a shop; its concentration and spice notes remind me of pricier northern Rhône Syrahs.

2012 Ameztoi Rubentis ($19)
My favorite wine event of the year, Txikifest, happens every May in the back alley at NYC's Txikito; Txakolina, a spritzy Spanish wine, flows freely. I always hunt down as many glasses of this rosé as I can.
