Albahra Garnacha Tintorera 2018

Peculiar. Incredibly acidic - like Barolo but without the tannins (tannin is quite mild). The acidity is felt not on entry but as the wine moves through the palate, at the back of the tongue and roof of the mouth. There is very sour blackberry, crushed cherry and some (misplaced?) green pepper and green peppercorn notes, alongside the acidity which has a white grapefruit edge. Very taught, linear and quite difficult to appreciate beyond that wall of acidity.

Ultimately quite a confusing wine, but I wonder if this just needs a few years laying down to allow the acidity to better integrate. Had improved by the third glass, after three hours of air, with a pleasingly dry finish, but nonetheless I see this as a wine that could improve.

Big bold and juicy. Lots of tannins but still Lucy rather than austere. Well done — 20 days ago

Felseneck Großes Gewächs Trocken Riesling 2010

Crazy after 10 years. Petrolly a hint of dried pineapple.

Palate is still fresh. Juicy. dried pineapple. Mineral balance. Crazy. Maybe the wall of flavor minerality has dissipated a bit but you are getting some interesting new flavors.

What a nose. A knockout. So complex. So floral. Beautiful pure and detailed cherry fruit. Elite florals. Roses and violets. Wet moss. Just out of hand. So clear. So well defined. Amazing stoniness that props up all the other aromas. A stoney base if you will. Superb mint/tree bark/sous bois triple play. Wow. Really tremendous clarity here. Mesmerizing. Hypnotizing. Palate is so so concentrated and super pure. The depth is crazy. Amazing purity and elegance. Sick tiny berry fruit intensity. All the darkest red cherries in a bowl of very dark cherries. The palate impact and layered off the wall concentrated fruit is the story here. Wow. Some of the best fruit I’ve ever had in a GirardSappy and dense and really coats the palate and has amazing staying power. Just sick. So so sick. What an outrageous bottle of Girard. This has length for days upon days. So long. So pure. Fruit is just insane. If this had more elegance it would be a 9.5. It’s 9.489 really. — a month ago
