Heinz Eifel

Beerenauslese Riesling

Tangerine honey, grapefruit sugar, with peonies, the most perfect, spun cotton candy, chamomile, pear and apple and almond and hazelnut, chutney, and toast with a nano marmalade containing frozen peaches. The exquisite peach blossom honey, chamomile, sultanas, elderberry, gooseberry, quince, dried starfruit and lime. Incredibly layered in folds of dried and concentrated richness. #riesling #deutschewein #wein #beerenauslese #dessertwine #botrytis — 3 months ago

Succes d'Automne Viré-Clessé Chardonnay 2006

November-harvested, botrytised Chardonnay. Originally a banned style in Vire-Clesse but allowed now. Warm honey, manzanilla, white port. 100g RS, 4g acidity. Balanced, lively. #viréclessé #chardonnay #botrytis — 3 years ago

Château Pierre-Bise

Clos de la Soucherie Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu Chenin Blanc 2001

A mildly amber colour that makes me think of shrivelled grapes covered in mold. Too ethereal (light) to be a sweet wine, therefore I'd have it as an aperitif too. Apricots and honey and orange marmalade and walnuts and marzipan, tangy aftertaste. Not a cultural milestone like a Sauternes or a Tokaji but excellent in its own league. #cheninlikeadiamond #cheninblanc #loire #botrytis #sweetwine #noblerot #anjou #saumur #beaulieu — 3 years ago

Red Tail Ridge Winery

Sticky Riesling 2012

BA-level sweetness. Heavily botrytised. Orange peel, baking spice, caramelized honey; super acidity and plenty long and complex. If you told me this was von Simmern or Statsweingut Rheingau, I’d believe it. #redtailridge #flxriesling #botrytis — a year ago

6 Puttonyos Tokaji Aszú Furmint Blend 2002

Orange peel, honey, blossom flowers, delicious, fragrant, out-worldly, moving towards orange confiture, marzipan, apricot and dried prunes. Young palate, fresh and rich, honeyed, long aftertaste. THIS IS NUTS!! GO & GET A BOTTLE NOW!!! #tokaji #aszú #botrytis #hungary #sweetwine #noblerot — 3 years ago

Medium gold. Resin and honey on the nose and a touch of varnish, orange blossom, burnt sugar, caramel. A fantastic wine, perhaps too sweet to be completely bbalanced. #botrytis #austrianwine #trockenbeerenauslese — 2 years ago

Wow!! Golden with great concentration. #botrytis nose with high complexity. A total palate f**k. The appearance of being bone dry with racy acidity, superb tension, and incredible complexity. Long finish. This is a baby at 12 years old. Still tasting amazing after 7 days of being open. #coteauxdulayon #moulintouchais #cheninblanc #loirevalley #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Clos de la Soucherie Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu Chenin Blanc 2005

A version 4 years younger that is pure fruit, delicate as the 2001 but maybe less developed, less complex. Nothing wrong with that, though 😸. Apparently the winemaker, Monsieur Papin, is called "the poet of Chenin Blanc" by the revered Andrew Jefford and if he said so my only aim is to look for more Papins to corroborate through a field research. Excellent! #cheninblanc #loire #botrytis #sweetwine #noblerot #anjou #saumur #beaulieu — 3 years ago
