2004 Roagna Barbaresco Crichët Pajé

Nebbiolo more

8/30/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): Soaring aromatics. Very primary with a pine forest element. Supple, highly polished, very concentrated. Sneaky tannins, deep and powerful.

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): Here we go, big time flowers and tar. They keep maybe 1-3% of the stems for this. Really suave and polished on entry with a nice bite on the finish.

2008 Roagna Barolo La Pira

Nebbiolo more

8/30/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): Very classic aromatics. Flowers, tar, cranberry and a hint of orange juice. Stellar energy, nice structure, dusky and fine. Deeply mineral and reserved. Very old school, very structured.

2013 Weinbau Markus Ruch Pinot Noir Gächlingen Schlemmweg

Hallau more

8/30/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): The first bottle was a bit off, so they poured a new one. Dark and reserved, much more subtle and aromatically reserved than the Haalde. Strong umami notes of mushroom and forest. Incredible precision and focus. The texture here is silky and caressing on the palate, and it's surprisingly tannic on the long finish. Definitely a wine to spend some time in the cellar.

2013 Weinbau Markus Ruch Pinot Noir Hallau Haalde

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): Whole cluster. Wow, this just EXPLODES from the glass. Smoky, wild stemmy and truly breathtaking. Incredible concentration without the slightest hint of heaviness. Tannins (whole cluster fermentation brings extra structure to the party) show up on the finish, subtle, suave and polished but quite persistent and grippy. This is a truly stunning wine.

2014 Weinbau Markus Ruch Pinot Noir Klettgauer

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): 2014 was a pretty brutal year with drenching rains through July and much of August, and then an outbreak of Drosophila suzukii (fruit flies). However, you wouldn't know that by tasting this wine. Gorgeous perfume with serious Pinot character. A savory note in the background.

2013 Domaine des Cavarodes (Etienne Thiébaud) Arbois Chardonnay de Messagelin

Chardonnay Blend, Chardonnay more

8/30/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): Much richer color, again with a reticent nose. With time and warmth this shows some oxidative personality on the upfront aromatics. Wow, the palate is quite rich, Meursault-esque (not really but in that direction). World class minerality. Very taut and noble.

2014 Domaine des Cavarodes (Etienne Thiébaud) Chardonnay Côtes du Jura Les Lumachelles

8/30/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): Very compressed aromatics, reticent, with bug spray and lemon zest elements. Wow, that is an intense acid monster. Very mineral, seashell, Chablis-esque, steely. The finish again shows lemon and some very clear oxidative elements. This is not an easy wine, sort of an Orange-lite, very nervous wine.

2014 Domaine des Cavarodes (Etienne Thiébaud) Arbois Trousseau de Messagelin

more

8/30/2015 - Eric wrote: NR

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): A more reticent nose. I don't quite have the vocabulary to describe these wines. Savage berries and some wild strawberry but with an almost animalistic edge. The palate on this one explodes, fresh and juicy with very dark berries. It finishes with a very savory, leathery, slightly sweaty element and some noticeable oxidative elements.

VinAare seminars (Bern, Switzerland): Glowing robe. Cool, menthol, bramble, with some berry perfume. A great nose, slightly wild and savage. Wow, this is pretty austere on the palate w/ very fresh acidity and a lingering, dark, leathery aftertaste. Very persistent acidity. Poulsard and Trousseau.

Riesling rendezvous (Bern, Switzerland): Lots of sulphur and spritz. Really mineral and aggressively youthful. A true Kabinett now that all of the baby fat is gone. It comes across as austere and masculine next to the much more delicate Willi Schaefer.
