Damn this is such pretty stuff. Pure whiffs of fresh bay, savory, rosemary as well as well as pine needles, wintergreen and forest berries intertwine effortlessly on the nose. Translucent tart cherry, cherry pit on the palate and into the long finish. Brilliant, elegant spatburgunder. — 2 days ago
Unscrew and pour. Super savory: black cherry, coffee, earth, damp leaf. singed herbs. I tried to entice my in-laws with this (and it was a good pairing for dinner, I swear) but it stood next to a Clos Vougeot, which although from '11 was more forward. Oh well, I enjoyed this. On the palate: loam and black cherry and coffee toast with a soft tannic finish. — 18 days ago
Been over a year since I’ve had this and really dug it last time. Glorious cooling spices. Lovely mineral and earthen scents. Oolong tea. Tree bark. Perfectly ripe cherries. Just gorgeous. So complex and layered. So delicate and pure. 9.5 nose. Palate is dynamite. Full of energy, power, concentration and depth. Very Red Riesling. So sappy. Ripe, sweet and velvety tannins. Superb structure and sap. Just brilliant. — 11 days ago
Under stelvin so bit tight on opening but with some air it has a great nose full of red peppercorn, Smokey red cherry, rose hips and slightly musky spice.
Palate is a little more straight forward but has a lovely freshness and plenty of lively red fruit. Again that slightly smoky cherry, red current and cranberry, not especially long on the finish but there are some nice berry bitters and touch of spice. Good value for money. — 8 days ago
First bottle in over a year. What a nose. Unreal cherries. So clean. Effusive. Bright. Alluring. Lots of dust, crushed rocks and earthiness. So so so pretty. Wow, hyper elegant palate with amazing richness but such a light touch on the back end of the mid palate and the finish. There’s a hit of opulence at the front end of the mid then it gets so scary elegant. What a wine. Elegant tannins and great complexity. Bright red fruits. So lovely. Amazing purity. A 9.35 now. So close to 9.4. Let’s see if air makes it better.
9.4 easy. Fruit got sweeter and more defined. Stunner. Go Max — 25 days ago
Quite dark. Came Thursday. Forest strawberries, limes, crushed stones. Fantastic Rosé tastes almost like a red. My favorite Rosé by far. Unlike the 2017 which was complex and needed 4 years. This is a drink now summer wine. I doubt this will last until the summer! It’s just too good. Salmon would be an awesome match. Looks like E&M did it again. I expect great things from the 2019 Reds based on this first peek. — 17 days ago
Tart cherry, tree bark, and hibiscus tea on the nose, leading to a wonderfully sweet and refreshing palate of strawberry, forest floor, and fresh herbs. The finish is lingering and pleasant, mild tannins offsetting the sweet, aromatic Pinot. Spätburgunder for the win, always. — 13 days ago
