As an exercise, tasting cheap old wine is always fun and unexpected. This held up grate. 11 percent alcohol. #oldwine — 2 years ago

Hi, Chris! Haven't opened it yet. I'm having an opening party here in Detroit in August, and I'll post an update. Hopefully all six won't be duds!

Oppenheimer Sackträger Beerenauslese Riesling 1975

F&#K YES. Ultra stoked to be drinking some older wine, especially when it’s a 40+ year old Beerenauslese Riesling, which has been impeccably stored by my buddy Pat since he bought it in the 70’s. Not sure if it was an expensive bottle back then, but it’s damn glorious today. On the nose, there’s a ton of honey, golden raisin and tiny little accent of balsamic (in a good way). Having aged this long, all the sugars and acid have melded and broken down into each other, and it’s not too sweet, but shows good fruit character. There’s some nuttiness but not oxidized really. I get ultra excited about old wine, and this was awesome.

It makes me want to lay down some of my own wine, but of course I always drink it too soon!

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 1995

Pretty good, especially for an 18 year old Chianti Classico. Leather, plum, tobacco leaf, earthy and dusty forest floor. The palate adds anise with an east going to medium finish. Don't wait as it likely won't get much better. #OLDwine #felsina — 6 years ago
