-Rugged Riesling-

Served with the Vinloq System
👀Dark yellow golden honey. Unfiltered
👃Sour citrus, wax, savory herbs with tea & mint
👅Honeyed, candied stone fruit. Ripe apples. Very herbal with pronounced acidity. Salty. The finish is dry, long, & delicious
So interesting. So expressive. Superb clarity. Singular flavor profile likely due to botrytis and long elevage. Just…wow

The remaining wine was Slow Decanted with Vinloq & refrigeration

Sampled this on 2 more occasions

DAY 15
👃Bold, distinctive & precise
👅Probably would not guess riesling in a blind tasting. Tea, cognac & sherry all make appearances. Bruised/ripe apple is only perceived sweetness
Virtually unchanged in 15 days. Feels very sturdy. Probably would be an interesting wine to cellar.

Jakob Tennstedt is a new winemaker in the Mosel. He biodynamically farms 50-100 year old vines he restored on steep blue slate terraces. This wine was so laborius to make that he will not do it again. I am glad I was able to try it this time and it gives me motivation to try his other wines🥂

Ambré Grande Champagne 1er Cru de Cognac

I don't have enough Cognac experience yet for a proper rating but I really like this. Very earthy, cool soil tones (trying not to say basement floor) in the aroma. Butterscotch and caramelized tones on the tongue. A pleasant experience. — 2 months ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

My last Brunello from 2010 vintage 😢
Complex aroma: cognac, vanilla, licorice, anise and dry cherry.
Dry and smooth.

Château d'Orignac

Pineau des Charentes

Tried May 1st 2022.
Raisins and treacle, with a Biscoff finish. Utterly sublime.
