Nose so good you wish your lungs had an exit so you could inhale nonstop.

Palate. Dense. Almost sticky. Unctuous. Great fruit. Sweet fruit. Almost tropical. Honey. Clings to the palate. Very well made.

At 3 hours almost like this sherry like butteriness. Not oxidized but the controlled richness. Becoming godlike epic level insane.

Nose is nutty

Saulheimer Kalkstein Riesling 2016

Nose is wonderfully mineral.

Palate is rocky minerals. Apricot. A touch of pleasant sourness. Apricot pit.

Long mineral finish.

What you want in an ortswein. Well made. Balanced. Good fruit but not too in your face. Mineral.

Domaine des Rutissons

Verdesse 2018

Wow. I love this.

Nose is like this sweet hay things.

Palate is so fresh. Almost sweet even thought it’s dry (if that makes sense). Fruit is early season peach- not over the top ripe. So good. Great acidity. Delicious.

Matthis Pinot Noir 2015

Nose is very aggressive. Almost has the power of Syrah. Very meaty.

Palate is similarly dense. It’s not California - it has nice mineral spine and acidity - but it has that level of fruit. Some spice. Very delicious. Great with food. Some sleek almost but not really licorice like an underground river.

After an hour you get some barolo character. Sweet plum fruit. MUCH better.

Mos def a semi whack bottle of wine. By that I mean very distinctive. You should drink this when you have some time to think. It’s tasty enough to pop and pour but you’ll miss out on something g very good and very interesting.

Ayze Grande Reserve Methode Traditionnelle White Blend

Nose is clean mountain air. Julie Andrews in sound of music clean. Lovely. Some floral elements. Mountain wildflowers ... let’s go with that to continue the metaphor.

Palate is fruity but not a known fruit. Meyer lemon is the closest but it’s not very sweet. Just a touch of RS to balance it out and add to the deliciousness. Good minerality. More on the spicy minerality side. Almost some sweet yeast.

Priced like crappy entry level champagne. Drinks like very good $60 champagne.

Not super fizzy. Which I like.
