Clavau Les Grans Murs Cornalin

Cornalin: Swiss grape variety. Ruby dress, shiny. Very nice balance between primary notes of red fruits, and rearing notes evoking caramel and cinnamon. A parcellar cuvée carried by a tense minerality balancing the tasting. The final displays semi-bodied tannins. Somewhere between Grenache and a Pinot-noir type Marsannay, Mercurey or Givry

Cornalin: cépage Suisse endémique. Robe rubis, brillante. Très bel équilibre entre des notes primaires fruits rouges, et notes d’élevage évoquant le caramel et la cannelle. Cuvée parcellaire portée par une minéralité tendue équilibrant la dégustation. La finale déploie des tanins semi-corsés. Quelque part entre la Grenache et un Pinot-noir type Marsannay, Mercurey ou Givry

On my wish list

Domaine Grisoni

Neuchâtel 1er Cru 2018

I have a REALLY hard time finding Swiss Pinot Noir wines that I like, but this meets and surpasses the mark!! It has a great balance of fruit and oak. Most Swiss Pinots are dull and light, but this one has great body. Highly recommended. — 21 days ago

Gantenbein

Pinot Noir 2017

I have been a huge fan of this domaine since they produced their first bottles in 1982. The wines are pure expressions of Pinot, delineated, mineral and salty. When young they can be very smokey/toasty but that bleeds out through aging. Unfortunately they are irresistible when young but the reward is even better with 7 to 10 years of bottle age. Tough to wait for that long. — 15 days ago

Should have read the back label. Late harvest cider. Too sweet for my personal taste but very well made. — a month ago

Alluring nose of woodland spice, tree bark, superb minerality and some dark cherry fruit. Initially palate is raw and young and will need an hour but it’s got sweet fruit, length, suave tannins and excellent length. Very pure. Texture is awesome. Needs air. Will be back.

Now nose has come around. Gorgeous black cherries. Huge deep woodland spices and flowers. Palate is juicy and very complex with terrific freshness and delicacy. Vibrant and in I incisive tannins. Long.

Incredible wine. Muller-Thurgau on another level. Apricots, medicinal, minerals, fresh flowers and an alpine stream. Maybe I’m projecting? But this is serious stuff. What a find. — a month ago

Nose here has more dimension than the 2017. Spice, insane integrated oak, classier than the 2017. Huge minerals as well. Just gorgeous. A stop you in your tracks nose. Tree bark. Incense. New nuances every 30 seconds. A potpourri. Palate is meta juicy with awesome energy and purity. So delineated and a masterful flavor hierarchy. Gorgeous cherries, elegant and just ephemeral tannins. Long. Compact. Amazing finesse. A stunning, stunning wine. So complex and elegant. A masterpiece and so much better than 17. — a month ago
