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
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! — a month ago
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. — 7 days ago
Ren drikkeglæde på flaske. Her er en vis krop, men også friskhed, frugt, syre og mild mineralitet. — 6 days ago
Crushed rocks, white flowers, and lemon-lime on the nose. Same on the palate, plus starfruit/underripe pineapple, and some passionfruit. High acidity well balanced with a touch of RS. — 24 days ago
