Ripe and deep nose. Huge stone fruits, peach, apricot, plum, tangerine and more. Some citrus undertones as well. Gorgeous minerality and unreal roundness to the nose. This is 13% which contributes to the depth. The 12% Steffensberg was more piquant and less deep. Amazing what an incremental tick up in alcohol does. Huge spice and vulcanized rubber. ￼Light saffron as well. Palate is ripe and juicy and round with great freshness and depth. Really deep. So many piquant stone fruits. This needs air to open up as it’s holding back. What a long, luscious finish. Sapid. Pure. So complex and mineral. Juicy. So many stone fruits like apricot, peach and tangerine. I’ll be back as it opens. As this airs the palate depth is profound. The complexity ratchets up a notch as does the minerality. — 4 days ago
I have not seen the bottling in the U.S. before and brought it back from a recent overseas trip.
Stone fruits commingling with citrus fruits with light brioche and ginger spice. Creamy yet robust. The freshness, purity, precision, and elegance are all there, which is why BdB is my favorite type of Champagne when done right.
17’ based wine with 30% reserve, disgorged in 21’.
And why not all Champagne bottling display the information already? — 9 days ago
When you tell your wife to open anything I’ll be back from the store. She picks the inaugural vintage of a 7 year vertical you have been collecting. And it’s the last bottle. PS she usually hates this wine. Shocked and saddened that it was the last but so stoked to be drinking it tonight!!! Cheers! — 3 days ago
Earth, honey , hay. Benefitting from the age - no water. Full strength. Rich and long finish. Delightful. Minerals. Still acid to back it up. — 3 days ago
I think its better days were back in mid-2015+. — 14 days ago
E&M Weissburgunder goes feral beyond their trademark restrained wild spirit.
4 days of skins, it's copper tones, grippy, and full of acetone. And it's really good. Wild but grown up, responsible.
Expressively generous aromas loaded up with sour fruit and vinegar - naval orange, apricot, basil, and VA that tickles the back upper parts. Powerful long flavors too - sour apricot, pear, and sweet orange. Wonderful. — 5 days ago
