Tasted blind. Old wine color. Reddish light brown, thin and translucent. Notes of cherries, cola, earth, a little wood and some rhubarb. With more air this gained complexity and added salt and rose petals to its bouquet. At the end of the evening it had a nice richness too. But compared to a 66 DRC GE we had in the past year, there was consensus this must have had some issues with storage or handling at some point. Was really good but not the "Wow" we expected.

This is the best wine I have enjoyed in the last 5 months. Still lingering in my minds eye. Moseltov!

OK I don’t drink this kind of shit often (who does?) but wow. Just a complete wine. Tough to describe how integrated, seamless, and ethereal a wine can be.

Amazing chance to taste this, very evocative and compelling. I can sort of understand the hype.

I remember being a 6 years old child and asking my parents what was the best wine in the world. And they will always, always answer Romanée-Conti...! Mom, Dad, here we are, I tasted the best wine in the world...! Thank you for introducing me to wine and giving me your passion as a legacy. Right now I feel lucky, I feel blessed, I feel complete!

This is an esquire wine. Fresh, precocious, fruit and utterly elegant!
