Assmannshausen Pinot Noir 2014

Lyle Fass
9.3

Gorgeous nose of sour cherries, early season cherries and gorgeous deep minerality. The perfect 50/50 mix of cherries and almost chalky/limestone minerality. Floral as well. So clean, deep and penetrative. Palate is balanced and so so pure. Gorgeous acid and mouthfeel with teeming cherry fruit. So barely sweet and outrageous finesse and depth. Pitter patter of a finish that melts on your palate. Wow. Finish is terrific. Sappy and generous. Also the crazy superb intense minerality on the palate. Still has terrific structure and is teeming with energy and minerals. Almost a clay like mouthfeel in the finish. This will slowly unfurl like the rest of the Chat Sauvage wines. Brilliant in such a subtle way. The wine stays with you on the finish. Concentration and depth pick up with air. Between 9.3/9.4 for now. More like 9.35999999. — 2 months ago

Hoellenberg Spatburgunder 2012

2012 Hoellenberg Spaetburgunder Goldkapsel (Auction wine). Classic Rheingau pinot "hardness." Very very good but not a charming wine, rather an intellectual one. — 5 years ago
