VA on the nose showing the hot vintage but still alive!!!! A very sweet and dynamic palate with stewed red fruit, an intact structure, and very earthy characteristics. This wine became better for about an hour and then slowly faded away. #chambertin #josephdrouhin #1934 — 5 years ago
#1934 was one of the three best vintages of that decade in #Germany, along with 1937 & 1938.
The #Staatsweingut #Rheingaus produced in this era were excellent; especially those from the steep, #slate soil sites of the majestic Rüdesheimer Berg.
This is a perfectly balanced wine when it comes to sweetness versus acidity and in no way a big, fat, syrupy overstated example of late-picked #Riesling, but rather restrained by comparison...a wine one can easily drink more than one glass of--GRANDIOS!!! #klostereberbach #tba — 5 years ago
