￼woos with ripe peach, apricot￼ and yellow flowers, but doesn’t stick the landing, ending with too much alcohol and a bit flabby￼ — 3 months ago
Clear light yellow. Nose of match stick and stone. Palate of lemon curd, tree fruit, stones and minerals. Perfect balance and a long smooth finish. I detect no oak. Flirting with perfection.
The vineyard is in Blagny where the whites are sold as Meursault. — 21 days ago
Wow. Just wow. This nose has unlimited depth. Huge dark cherries. Black. Red. Dark red. Stunning limestone. Blackberry as well. Just huge, dense, but serene. Spice. A new nuance every time I stick my large nose in the glass. Palate is painfully intense and has a kaleidoscopic intensity. Ungodly sweet fruit and a huge limestone mineral wash but in classic Holle fashion this is around 10% of its potential upon opening and the finish is again clipped like the 19 Holle Riesling. The nose has almost a macerated cherry effect. The balance and length are perfect but it’s a donut wine right now with a big gaping hole in the the middle. It will bialyize soon. The nose is at a 9.7 now. I know the palate will catch up. The nose has some of the most stunning fruit ever. Truly wow. The finesse is starting as are the sweet inner mouth aromas and the tannins are sweet and so fine. Really profound length and such a finesse. I can see why Piggott gave this 99. I’m not quite there yet but I might with air. Getting super tangy and even more black cherry fruited. What a finish. Sneakily long. 9.6 to 9.8 with air. Just so elegant and seamless. Mind blowing. — 2 months ago
Bramaterra! Resurrected subregion up north produces a delicate, fine Nebbiolo blended with some native grapes. Underripe strawberry, brine, and bright acid. Floral and light bodied. Tannins stick around. Cool!! — 18 days ago
Thought we might have waited too long to open this one, but it's 2022 and the 2015 is still beautiful. Black cherry, dried herbs, a little salinity and plenty of structure. Thank you, Van! — 4 months ago
