Gabriel Meffre

Domaine de Longue Toque 2016

A whiff of an cherry orchard after flowering.

Heavier bodied, this Vac shows tobacco, prune, unsweetened cherry, mint, alder, oak. Firm tannins let go of the medium acidity, to carry in the length of this finish.

Chassagne-Montrachet Chardonnay 2018

Minerals on the nose, with time in the glass more tropical citrus aromas emerge. More tropical fruit flavors on the palate. Medium bodied. — 2 months ago

Enjoyed this wine. Lighter nose, pear with a hint of floral. Very flavorful though, dry full bodied slightly herbal good acidity. Lots of lemon zest and lime. Would buy again. — 2 months ago

"St. Mapalis" Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône Villages Red Rhone Blend 2018

I haven’t rated a wine in a long time. This one merited a rating. It’s like finding a value play in a sea of growth stocks or a girl who you’re attracted to who’s also an astro physicist and fights crime at night. It’s dry and flavourful. — a month ago

Domaine Gagey Le Clou D'Orge Ladoix Chardonnay 2018

Nose has ripening pineapple, orange peel, melted butter, warmed ripe peach and dried oak.

Palate has waxy orange peel, pineapple, Clementine juice, mild vanilla influence with light acidity and medium finish. Light on palate concentration at this stage.

Decanted 5H. Youthful, a first check on our Fall 2020 acquisitions which will go into hiding until at least 2026+

24H Update:
Nose is overflowing the Gabriel Glas with tropical fruits, ripe pineapple, pineapple core, Clementine orange zest, ripe mango but a touch of alcohol today. Palate has gentle lemon zest, pineapple, so much pineapple, just crazy! We love this wine and it only gets better with aging! Score change from 9.1 > 9.3 today. 🤯

Yes sir, but a bottle with five additional years of aging. This will be in similar form in several more years.

Weingut Josef Walter

Centgrafenberg Frühburgunder "J" Trocken 2007

Nose has ripe black cherry, blackberry, spring violets, vanilla, melted bittersweet chocolate and dry earth.

Palate has dried black cherry, ripe black currant, ripe plum, wet tree bark, molasses bread and under-ripe cherry, slightly tart with medium tannins.

Bottled under Stelvin closure, opened for slow oxidation 6H, then decanted 2H, more time appreciated. Notes to be updated.

24H Update:
Nose exudes ripe, sappy dark red fruits, just overrunning the Gabriel Glas, light (warm) molasses, brown bread dough and black cherry syrup reduction. Palate is crazy, all prior traits but with a sweet reduction and the acidity actually picked up. Moving this score from 9.4 to 9.5, likely one of the finest red German wines I've ever tasted. An equal to finely aged Burgundy wine.

Walter needs age then he can compete against everybody. But the age is critical.
