Something I've yet to try. 🙂

Hofgut Falkenstein

Niedermenniger Herrenberg Kabinett Feinherb Riesling 2018

So damn good. Light, stone fruit, some acid to keep the sweet in check. Rockstar pairing with mixed sushi. I basically chugged this. — 17 hours ago

Domaine de la Bongran

Cuvée E.J. Thévenet Viré-Clessé Chardonnay 2014

9.4

This has evolved quite a bit since my last bottle. Now arrived at a deep straw yellow golden color. On the nose caramelized butter popcorn with a distinct smell of botyris mixed with mineral slate.

The acidic attack and yellow fruits on the palate reminds me of German riesling. Citrus fruits and honeycomb wrapped in fatty roundness. Full and round but still keeping freshness, precision and balance. The citric acidity keeps on lingering during the long finish. This will age well for a couple of years, too bad it is my last bottle.

Soave Classico Garganega 2017

9.0

One of the nicer efforts in Soave showing ripe nectarine, white peach, beeswax, lanolin, citrus aromas and a strong vein of minerality mixed with crushed stones. Silky mouthfeel w/firm acidic backbone. — 15 days ago

Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2017

8.9

Functional Costco purchase @ $18.99. Delectable has this at $30. 🙄 Wouldn’t it be great for users & the app if we could buy wine through Delectable at more reasonable prices plus free shipping? Think of all the platform bugs Delectable could fix with the added revenue.

The nose shows; honeysuckle notes, ripe, ruby & sour lemons, overripe pineapple juice, dried apricots, yellow peach, touch of marmalade fruit, combo of white with shades of pink grapefruits, melted caramel, saline, limestone, soft, understated chalkiness, toasted nuts, candle wax, green leaves that are not quite eucalyptus, melted raw sugar, butterscotch notes with candied yellow lilies and a touch of mixed flower greens.

The body is; thick, full, round with high viscosity. Honeysuckle notes, ripe, ruby & sour lemons, overripe pineapple juice, dried apricots, yellow peach, tangerines, touch of marmalade fruit, combo of white with shades of pink grapefruits, melted caramel, vanilla, saline, white spice, limestone, dry, crushed volcanics, soft, understated chalkiness, toasted nuts, candle wax, warm toast, green leaves that are not quite eucalyptus, melted raw sugar, butterscotch notes with candied yellow lilies and a touch of mixed flower greens. The acidity is round and beautiful. The finish is; rich, ruby, elegant, well balanced fruit & earth and persists nicely for minutes.

Smashing with Turkish Dried Apricots.

Cheeses; Jasper Hill Alpha Tolman & Willoughby, Mimolette. Dried Turkish Apricots, Cashews & Columbus Italian Dry Salami. Otherwise, tonight’s dinner.

Domaine de la Côte Sainte-Epine

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Syrah 2013

Not so much evolution from the last btl. Need to be patient with the last btl. After 1 hr open, slow-ox, and vigorous swirling, a lovely nose slowly emerges: sweet, dark, dark, blackberry, soft charcoal and olive notes, and pure granitic minerality. On the palate: granite, fantastic acidity, sweet blackberry, grapefruit pith, perhaps a touch thinner than I would like, especially given the density the nose suggests, the finish is soft black pepper, mixed with chalky tannin. Still very much in the unfurling stage...maybe try to wait 5 more years for the next btl? — 10 days ago
