Softer everywhere than the ‘07 we drank alongside. On the nose a tad more lush, nothing green. More voluptuous - zaftig? - giving it a more feminine, sexy and velvety feel. Red fruit shroomier in tones and finish just a bit longer and lusher. If the ‘07s tannins turn right, could be heading in this direction but the ‘03s can be had for ~$100 and that a bloody bargain. — 7 days ago
To me this is just to be called Riesling+
I went to grab a box from the cellar and i found this bottle had the cork popped out.
Well, it must have been opened for a couple of days at least cause the wine that spilled out was vanished, floor was dry. However a couple of glasses were left in the bottle and i obviously gave it a go.
The wine was pretty cloudy, marvellous intensity though; it had freshness, mineral, fruit, aromatic herbs and spices. A pity cause I was meant to bring this back to Europe next year to get some friends to taste it. Very very long. — 8 days ago
Gave this 2 hrs slow ox after reading prev CT notes. (The person whom I buy this from said:."uncork, place in cool cellar for 5-7 days corked, and then try"). This is glorious Meursault, and did not show tight to my palate. On the nose: soft reduction, lime, lemon oil, a hint of vanilla, apple, just so aromatically dense. On the palate: the acidity is unbelievably lively, good density, loads of minerality, lemon/lime...ok, density builds to a beguiling finish. I don't want to wax rhapsodic about this wine because the prices are already so high... — 5 days ago
Sourced from the Walla Walla Rocks District, this opens with Umami and nori tones that mingle with Mandarin orange rind, and guava puree tones that all dance in the glass. The palate is plush, showing off its silky texture. Layers of bright red fruits collide with minerals, charcuterie, citrus rind accents and stony undertones on the palate. Sinfully good in its youth, this beautiful wine will cellar well over the next decade. Drink 2020-2030- 94 — 6 days ago
