Tasted blind. Medium gold, heavy in the glass. Bright exotic nose. Notes of apricot, spice, cooked oranges, white soil, slate/petrol and some honey on the end. Powerful in the mouth. Very ripe. Sneaky energy and acidity. Great start to the evening!

Oh wow. This is complex, rich and wonderful. Lychee, lemon. Exotic notes and beautiful minerality. Exceptionally long and refined.

Medium gold color. Heavy in the glass with a huge perfumed nose. Notes of apricot, petrol, orange peel. Great balance with lots of acidity to match the rich fruit. Great wine. Still on the upslope.

Graceful, elegant and powerful at the same time. Incredibly long complex finish.

Sadly, white wine is so often relegated to the role of opening act. I wanted to finish with a great still white with bottle age. It could have been white Burgundy or German Riesling, but ultimately I went with an older vintage of Clos Ste. Hune, a wine I completely adore. I have been fortunate to taste Clos Ste. Hune back to the mid-1960s and simply love the way it ages.

The 1990 Clos Ste. Hune is deep in color and overall intensity, with tons of textural richness and pure concentration. An exotic mélange of honey, chamomile, mango, hazelnut, wild flowers and candied orange peel opens up effortlessly in the glass. Even with all of its opulence and richness, the 1990 retains terrific freshness as well as energy. On this night it is simply magical, and a great way to wrap up a truly unforgettable evening.

Petroleum-y. Citrus zip. Acidity falling, not surprised. Some caramel sneaking in here and there
