Jaspis Pinot Noir 2016

Lyle Fass
9.6

This will be much better in 24 hours. But it’s really impressive. I find the serious Zieriesen wines need 24 hours to show. Nose is super floral. Lovely pure and detailed red cherry. Tangy. Even some citrus. The floral hit makes this stand out. This has a mindblowing nose. Perfume. Mineral. Just gorgeous. Palate has extraordinary fruit. Juicy and textured with stunning detail and gentle but there extraction. Really incredible palate presence. Long. Obviously young but man this is elite in every way. Brilliant wine. More layer. — 22 days ago

Jaspis Grauer Burgunder 2016

Lyle Fass
9.6

This wine gets better every vintage. Just stunning. Color is almost a pinkish hue on this years. Guessing some skin contact but only a little just to get the color as this has no tannin etc. What a nose. Stone fruits, hint of wood, huge minerality that is so clean and smells like some fresh new element. Can’t explain it. So mineral. Just soars yet is straight and direct. Some pink and white flowers as well. Concentrated yet so so elegant with dazzling purity and an intense fruit skin character. Dazzling purity and such focus and linearity. The fruit is so well defined and just stays with you and pushes forward on the palate slowly. Knockout finish. Just a brilliant bottle. I’m sure later in the day it will improve and push my score maybe higher. As it airs the complexity of aromas reaches hypersonic overdrive. Just insane. What a wine. Easily will age 15 years but I imagine in 7-8 it’s really gonna peak. — 2 months ago

Nose has a bit of funk, mint, bittersweet cocoa, dark big cherries, floral, hint of sweet oak, juicy, complex, young, almost embryonic. Balanced and pure. Needs 5 years. Long. Persistent. — 3 months ago

Rhini Blauer Spätburgunder 2016

9.5

Stunning nose. Deep and ripe cherry. Almost a liquor but so energetic. Spice and feral as well. Gorgeous. Palate is spectacular juicy. Elegant and pretty wine with a silken but substantial structure. Very juicy and so clear. Lithe tannins are very high quality. Long. Really terrific showing. Will grow with air and I’ll add to my note.

After 24 hours this got insane. 9.4 to 9.5. All Ziereisen needs 24 hours open.

Jaspis Baden Syrah 2016

Lyle Fass
9.5

Just a stunning but young Jaspis Syrah which is one of the greatest Syrahs in the world. Stunningly aromatic nose that echoes the Ziereisen Pinots yet it’s Syrah. Meat, fresh and bloody, some pleasant bittersweet cocoa like oak. Insane aromas. Head spinning. Berry. Flowers. Tree bark. Earth. Just so so aromatic. And right out of the bottle. Yet the palate is a bit tighter but no less amazing. Amazing fruit and so silky. Amazingly juicy but also delicate and just has a palate presence that demands your focus. Amazing fruit on the backend that is almost Burgundian. My goodness this is so so long. Hermitage level. Endless finish. It’s so fresh and the limestone just screams on the finish. Just an amazing wine. — a month ago

Needed 1 hour to shake off some stuff then a gorgeous bottle. Red cherries, spice and super mineral. Palate is so juicy and energetic. Dynamite sappy fruit. So damn pure and so much linearity. Straight as an arrow. Lovely tangy acidity and so so fresh. What length. What a value. Terrific lift and very mineral finish with cranberry and other berries. Fine tannins. What a wine. — a month ago

Le Petit Rouge 2015

Corked. Ugh. Fruit is cranberry. Very crunchy. Bummer.

Mildly corked so let me write a note. After 45 minutes very elegant fruit. Good palate coat. On a par with good 1er cru burgundy. Some alpine hints.

Lovely elegant finish. Fruit is more cherry after a bit.

Jaspis Alte Reben Gutedel 10 4 2016

Most in the blind thought it was at least a 1er Chablis. Very good guess I would say. It's impressive, just a little oakey and could do with a little more precision. Extract was sufficient but perhaps a little less than one would expect from top Burgundian domaines. Not a bad thing because I really liked this wine. So fine, pure, and mineral. The nose is flinty, woody, and smokey with the stone fruits playing second fiddle. Juicy and salty on the palate. Finishes round and long. I can definitely see why Hanspeter calls this his "Coche". I think some age could make this a mind-blowing wine. Btw, this is Chasselas 😉 — 4 months ago

@Aaron Tan Hanspeter doesn't give this stuff away, that's for sure. I pay AUD 165 equivalent in the US, I'm sure it's pricier to get it done there.

@Severn Goodwin Still not cheap, but at that price... It sure does give white burg a good run for the money.

@Aaron Tan Agreed, but good to have some 🦄 bottles in the cellar, unique stuff, unique place.
