Les Filles Vin de Savoie Chignin-Bergeron Roussanne 2019

Wow. Like a CPB blanc (Beaucastel VV?) with a bit of humor and some mountain air. Grapefruit, wet stone, pine, lemon oil, waxy palate, bitter almond. Need more of this in my life. Beautiful stuff @Lyle Fass — 10 days ago

Saulheimer Hölle Trocken Spätburgunder

2016. Holy cow. This wine is a miracle.

Nose is candied lilacs. Absolute heaven.

Palate is sweet candied plum. So elegant. Indescribably gorgeous internal aromatics. Perfect balance.

Vintage?

9.1

Intriguing, beguiling red, ruby barely opaque w/evolving nose of blackberry and plum Gummy Bear, a lift (maybe Alpine?) but def hi-toned note, herby Ricola, devious spice, medicinal & forest floor, floral. Needs food, played well w/duck breast. Med weight & med acidity. As @Lyle Fass mentioned: Gamay-esque, also reminded me of Lagrein. Killed this bottle in no time. Unique & esoteric variety, thanks Lyle — 17 days ago

Fairly intense greco aromatics. More so than other vintages. Starts to blow off with air. Lemon flowers. Lemon oil. The Greco aspect becomes a beautiful integrated element.

As it aerates more like this lemon flower perfume of the gods.

Palate is lovely Almost honeyed a bit. Mineral. Lemony. Lemon essence. Lemon mountain stream. Very clean and elegant.

As this opens elegant richness. Almost a meursaulty finish. As it opens like rich delicious mountain stream. Some apricot in the background.

It’s almost hilarious what a dedicated team can do when quality is the only thing that matters. This is world class wine.

Stunning. Thanks to @Lyle Fass for turning me on to this. Kind of ruins my interest in other Riesling, though. At least for now! — a month ago
