Kastanienbusch Pinot Noir 2015

A very interesting wine. Definitely spatburgunder from a flavor profile. But classic burgundy from a style profile. Very elegant and balanced. Sort of a soft early season cherry fruit. It has acidic balance but much less pronounced than most fass wine on the attack. May be the vintage. More on the finish which is sprightly. Long and elegant with cherry perfume. ... as this aerates it has this wackily gorgeous cherry flower thing going on. In 3 years this could drink like a $150 wine. Which makes sense as it’s grand cru terroir even if it cost $30 or so. Finish is sweet cherry licorice. WOW. Approaching top 10 lifetime qpr. So elegant. ... as this evolves it’s so delicious in a unique way. — 6 days ago

Kastanienbusch Riesling 2015

Nose : piercingly mineral. Almost mineral perfume. Palate is deep citrus. Huge minerality. big rocks. Finish is long and mineral. Juicy as heck. Bought from fass selections. — 20 days ago

Feinherb Scheurebe 2016

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading GERSHWIN (Piano Concerto in F), GERSHWIN (Variations on “I Got Rhythm,” for piano and orchestra) and STRAVINSKY (Petrushka) with the amazing Jean-Yves Thibaude as the piano soloist on the two first works presented today. Jean-Yves is by far among our favorite pianists to grace the Koussevitzky Shed stage, so graceful, yet poignant!

Hot days call for cool wines, today there are some fun ones planned for sharing.

Nose has fresh fennel, cassis, freshly washed strawberry and ripe peach.

Palate has zesty acidity from ripe grapefruit or tangelo perhaps, ripe (light) kiwi and crushed mint.

So good, it's hard to keep a full bottle for long!

@Severn Goodwin Much appreciated, Thanks! I found it in Amsterdam, where I will be in a few weeks time. To attend a concert in the Royal Concertgebouw 👌

@Severn Goodwin this was awesome. We shockingly didn’t get to the leftovers until Tuesday night, and they held up like champs!

Pfalz Trocken Spätburgunder 2015

Just came of the boat the day before. Closed & in bottle shock. What a difference a day makes. 20 h later. Earthy and mushroomy with dark berry components. Needs time and definitely time to open up. Elegant. — 2 days ago

Vom Buntsandstein Riesling 2017

Loads of spicy apricots & peaches with some pineapple plus a pinch of white pepper and maybe some anise? Quite powerful and broad (Pfalz obviously) yet well balanced, focused and elegant. I like the precision on the palate and the long, spicy finish.
Great for an entry level wine and so much better than the Kalkmergel.
