2011 Terroir Al Limit Soc. Lda. Priorat Pedra de Guix

Grenache Blanc, Grenache more

7/4/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Smells of lemon curd, smoke, chalk and mint. It is quite waxy and textural in the mouth with lemon pulp and floral flavours. It dries off and leaves a mineral footprint once swallowed.

2009 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay more

7/4/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Has started to shut down. You get a light nuttiness on the nose coupled with some citrus and mineral. It is dense and pulpy in the mouth with a strong mineral spine and a sappy finish loaded with dry extract.

1960 Pierre Amadieu Gigondas

Red Rhone Blend more

7/4/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

From magnum this was terrific. It smells of brown sugar, forest floor, smoked meats and raisins. It is sweet and vinous in the mouth with some truffle notes and plenty of earth. It is only just mid-weight but well balanced and is quite fresh on the finish.

2004 Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux

Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

7/4/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

One of the better 04's I have had of late. Still has some of the pirepoix, greener notes of the vintage coupled with Asian spice and pure cherry fruit. It has a sweet core and the palate is laden with floral spice. There's a touch of sweet cedar from the oak and plenty of minerally acidity to the finish.

2013 F.X. Pichler Riesling Federspiel Loibner Burgstall

Wachau more

7/4/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Ripe fruit aromas and flavours. Has some guava with a little freshly cut pineapple action. It is a full, textured Riesling but finishes crisp and dry.

1998 Domaine François Cotat (Paul & François) Sancerre Cuvée Paul et Guillaume

Sauvignon Blanc more

7/4/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Hands down the most engaging Sancerre to have passed my lips. Pours out fresh and glistening with a green tinge. The nose is strong, direct and piercing with notes of guava, cut grass, capsicum and gooseberry. It is unctuous, thick and slightly oily but by no means heavy. It has so much power and finishes with a touch of fruit rind bitterness. Length is extraordinary.

2013 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

Chardonnay more

7/3/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Plenty going on from the word get go. It has smoky mineral lift to the aroma. There's loads of candied citrus and some lime blossom as well. It is rich, direct and intense with Grand Cru weight. Sappy flavours coat the palate and it finishes dry with excellent length of flavour.

2012 Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien

Chardonnay more

7/3/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Some mineral reduction shows on the nose at first. The flesh has fallen away somewhat and now we're left with a study in geology. It is rich but no fruit is evident. It has such rocky detail. The palate is etched in stone. It is a wine of great shape and texture. There's flintiness to the finish and loads of dry extract. Fantastic.

2011 Paolo Manzone Barolo Meriame

Nebbiolo more

7/2/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

This could keep an army merry. Its big, bold and masculine. It is ripe and you get dense black cherry and some dried fruit aromas and flavours. There's some tar and a little Christmas cake spice. Tannins are abundant and supportive.

2011 Paolo Manzone Barolo Serralunga

Nebbiolo more

7/2/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Smells of plum, dark cherry, bitter chocolate and iron filings. It is meaty, muscular and very savoury. Fruit is ripe and there's generosity to the wine. Length is good with chewy Barolo tannins. Drink this while your 2010's age.

Highly perfumed with some licorice, chocolate, dried flowers, cassis and sweet cedar. It is full and generous with glossy fruit and plenty of savoury nuance. Lovely proportion and balance.

2014 Paolo Manzone Dolcetto d'Alba Magna

more

7/2/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Dolcetto is all about lively, juicy fruit and this one is a beauty. It is like biting into a just ripe blood plum. There are notes of berry, violets and a hint of earth. It really dries off towards the finish and leaves a savoury impression on the palate once swallowed. Delicious stuff.

2014 Paolo Manzone Roero Arneis Reysu

more

7/2/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

So much vibrancy and energy. The aroma is freshly cut pear, a hint of aniseed, some grapefruit and tangerine. It is fruit driven in the mouth but nothing is overt. It is pure and clean with good texture and a crunchy dry finish.

2013 Domaine Gramenon Côtes du Rhône La Sagesse

Red Rhone Blend more

7/1/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Complex aromatics of charred meat, rosemary, blood plum, cherry, tar and violets. It is plush and juicy in the mouth with malleable tannins. Acidity feels relatively low but the wine is fresh and there's a salty mineral thing that boots in towards the finish. Deliciously gluggable.

1977 Dupont-Tisserandot Charmes-Chambertin

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

6/30/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Has some smoky, meaty notes coupled with a bit of pine needle sap action. You get a touch of mirepoix and something reminiscent of celery salt. It has brown sugar sweetness and is quite a tasty drink.

2012 Koehler-Ruprecht Kallstadter Saumagen Riesling Kabinett trocken

Pfalz more

6/30/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Engaging nose with some honeysuckle, spiced pear and custard apple things going on. It is full and rich with lovely fruit and some spicy notes. Acidity plays gently in the background and the wine shows good poise and persistence.

2013 Weingut Heymann-Löwenstein Riesling Schieferterrassen

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

6/29/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

These wines are always rich and powerful expressions of the variety and this continues the trend, although it does possess a high degree of elegance. There are ripe fruit aromas and flavours. It has notes of peach, pear, tangerine and citrus. There’s a touch of residual sugar that gives the palate a gentle honey flavour and it crackles with the taste of lime sherbet on the finish. 12.5% alcohol.

2004 Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault 1er Cru Charmes

Chardonnay more

6/28/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Just getting a little too many development traits (think brulee, nuts and crème caramel). Has good intensity and full of rich and heady flavours. Perhaps lacking a little bit of tension and detail because of some oxidation sneaking in.

2006 Louis Carillon Puligny-Montrachet

Chardonnay more

6/28/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

In a perfect place right now. Has some honeysuckle to the aroma along with white peach and toast. Full and rich in the mouth but with a degree of elegance you always get with Carillon. Good shape and excellent persistence.

2000 Domaine Bertagna Clos Vougeot

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

6/28/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

From magnum this was deep, dense, sooty and youthful. A very masculine wine without the usual charms of the vintage. It is rich and chewy and in need of another decade to soften out.

2015 Vickery Riesling EVR103ZV

Eden Valley more

6/28/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

So fine and subtle with a rainwater purity quality to it. There are notes of dried flowers, blossom, bath salts, citrus and flint. It is direct and minerally with a squeeze of lemon and a touch of fennel. It is one of those wines that delivers a satisfying level of flavor but remains light on its feet at the same time. Terrific stuff.

2002 Domaine Dujac Morey St. Denis

Pinot Noir more

6/25/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Seriously good village wine that is as fresh as a trout. Creamy, sweet cherry fruits are laced with flora. Flesh overlays a base of mineral in the mouth. It is opulent and mouthfilling with good structure to the finish. Absolutely punches above its weight so far as level is concerned.

2013 Weingut Stadt Krems Riesling Reserve Grillenparz Kremstal

6/25/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Some dried flowers, white pepper and musk to the aroma. It is spicy and dry in the mouth with quite a full, rich and heady palate. With air this wine shows complexity of ripe orchard fruit flavours. There's some citrus rind to the finish.
