The 09 is tasting great but I think I prefer the 11. This one has some really nice texter and this creamy thing going on. But the 11 is just so beautiful and tropical. Good thing I have both! :)

Stellar showing. Always bold and bountiful. Scores are too low here.

The Fall Confrerie St Etienne dinner highlighting Alsatian whites alongside French and Napa reds. A delightful evening!

I’ll be honest...this kind of stole the evening. It was paired alongside a pumpkin spice creme brûlée and it was an astounding pairing. Out of mag. Honeyed apricot, cashews, Mexican vanilla. Could still use another 7-10yrs away, but hard to ignore now!

A more exotic/tropical fruit profile than with 03 with a very desirable tartness.

A showstopper, especially for its price. Decadent and lush. Layers of tropical fruit, dried pineapple, dried apricot and apricot jam. Nice vein of acidity to keep it light and lively. On the finish Vietnamese coconut caramel custard, a waft of cardamom. Gorgeous.

A rich, tropical bonanza! Quite soft and showing its wood.

Very nice and powerful fruity nose, touches of honey, Mellon, and pepper on taste. Slightly boozy and acidic finish.
