Mon Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Wow. This wine was meh after first opening but after being argon gassed and then stuck in the fridge for 3 days - it changed.

With airtime and coming back to temp - it opened and exploded with depth and ripe berry fruit Blues.

Just kicked butt. Will be seriously decanting the next bottle.

Trarbacher Huhnerberg trocken Riesling Spätlese* 2020

Lyle Fass
9.8

Wow. Martin’s signature wine in my opinion. Huge, complex and serene nose. So elegant and expansive. Airy, layered and ethereal. Stunning. 9.8 nose. Just has that extra. Confectionery. Grapefruit. Apricot. Wow. Smells like Riesling grown in chevalier montrachet. One of the most beautiful noses on a young Müllen ever. Genius. It’s so lifted, layered, complex and ethereal. Unreal minerality. Wow that palate is about as pure, elegant and lithely structured as one can imagine. Such structure on the mid and the finish. Amazing concentration and density. Round and full of citrus pith, grapefruit, apricot and peach skin and minor peach flesh. Finish keeps going and going. Astonishing length. Wow. This will be better in 10 years.

On day 2 this is so refined and so brilliant. One of the best TH Sp Trockens ever. The complexity and completeness is just unreal. 9.7 to 9.8 overnight and one of the wines of the vintage.

Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan 2016

I guess it doesn’t matter what champagne I am drinking, a good red always wins. This was an elegant, well balanced left bank Bordeaux with very fine grained, polished tannins fully integrated with the dark earthy fruit. My kinda wine. — 18 days ago

Tight tight on the takeoff but opened up in orbit beautifully. I keep going back to ‘14 whites bc they’re so damn special. — 3 years ago

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2012

Mid yellow in colour. An interesting marine type note which became oxidative with time. Notes of citrus and white peach, a little broad. A creamy texture from part oak maturation. 76% Sauvignon Blanc 24% Semillon. Fermented in barrel on lees for 18 months. 35% new barrels. — 14 days ago

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Too young, yes, but good times with my lovely wife let this open up big time. Rich aromatics, evolved over conversation. Cedar, pie spice, dark fruits, floral. Started out smooth and silky before the tannins really kicked in. This is gonna be killer with more time. Paired awesome with tonight’s beef tartare, bolognese, and pork shank osso bucco. — 9 months ago

Opened the 2018 approx 3 days before you. Didn't seem off-just reticent. Obvs too young. Body was killer but aromatics/flavors weren't there. Speaks to being corked but didn't detect that vs just dumb. Have a backup bottle that I'll hit in the next 6 months.
