No proper note - like a good classic chianti with a bit mote punch to it. Kirch and jammy red fruits. Very good quality wine, 87p

2011 Provam Vinho Verde Espumante Coto de Mamoelas

Alvarinho, Albariño more

7/31/2015 - honest bob wrote: 82 points

From 75cl, good layered cork. This misguided holiday purchase (it tasted refreshing under hot Portuguese sun, from an inappropriately big glass) turns out to be a snarling, slightly bitter Alvarinho version of a flabby Italian Prosecco when examined from familiar stemware at home. Soapy scent, emasculated bubbles. 11,50 EUR/75cl? Oops. 81-82P

Dark yellow, some minerality and acid, but lacks the notes of honey that I remembered. Perhaps over the hill.

1986 Weingut Richard Schwaab-Jakoby Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese halbtrocken

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

7/31/2015 - Soteriologist Likes this wine: 94 points

Forget young whites. This is incredible. You won't be able to find this particular producer anymore, the Weingut seems to be defunct. Originally this may have been a rather mediocre Mosel-Riesling, but now, almost 30 years later, it is a revelation.

Citrus notes seem to be gone, except they return in the incredible length. But at the arrival instead of citrus you get old apple, old quince, a bit of botrytis and even plum ! In a Riesling ? Acidity is still present, actually a bit to the sour side, but the depth is such that it almost doesn't matter.

So the cork was soaked and immediately broke and one half fell into the bottle and the wine (where it is swimming at the moment), but the wine is still phenomenal. I am too inexperienced with old Rieslings to know whether the barnyard note is a sign of slight spoilage or if this comes with age - it gives it a reminiscence of Pinot Noir, but I love it.

Dig this: I got this for 3 € (less than 5 € including postage). The trader assigned this a medium risk and so sold it cheap. I would think that this bottle was worth roughly 40 - 50 €, had you known that it was going to be good.

Experimental wine buying ! So what is this wine to you since it is as extinct as the dinosaurs ? Look for old cellars, bequests of people who don't care about their old stuff...away from the commercial mainstream.

Here's a little video I did on this.

White Rhone Blend more

7/31/2015 - brittain Likes this wine: 89 points

Powerful wine, with good acidity. Full and rich with secondary slightly oxidative old Marsanne/Rousanne flavours. Drinking well now if you like older Rhone. Served with fish in a Spanish style, tomato/pepper/chorizo sauce. Worked well, but would maybe be best with pork in a rich sauce. Still a few years left if you have stocks.

I am a huge fan of Jeff's zins but not normally his blends. So I decided to give this Grenache a chance and it was delicious! It would be right at home in Gigondas. Might buy more.

2010 Trimbach Riesling Reserve

7/31/2015 - NostraBacchus Likes this wine: 91 points

From 0.375 bottle. First plenty of apples, buttery notes, baking spices, later also some apricot, pear and minerals. High acidity and medium+ body with good length. A very interesting mineral-driven Riesling full of tension. And a great value too!

Nice. Don't find the metallic finish described by other tasters. Light oak makes this a refreshing option vs. over-oaked cousins coming out of Napa. Perfect wine for a hot day poolside.

WOW! La Kiuva-style bacon over a light red nose! Maybe related to Pinot noir? Light brown orangish red nose. Very reminiscent of Petit Rouge but more fresh clean mushrooms. Just so alluring! Brings to mind 07 kiuva. Outstanding. Drink by the gallon.

2012 De Stefani Rosso Solér Veneto IGT

7/31/2015 - Dinamarca wrote: 89 points

Let drikkelig og absolut en god vin med rigtig god duft og smag ... Men (eller og) ikke den helt store kant, hvilket er både godt og skidt afhængig af smagsløgene. Duften er rigtig dejlig af kirsebær, blommer, lidt lakrids og en god del vanille. Smagen er ligeledes dejlig frugtig og let sødlig, henimod en let Amarone. God mellemlang eftersmag, der i min optik ender lidt fladt, men som fruen er meget begejstret for. Under alle omstændigheder en flot og vellavet vin samt en interessant sammensætning af druer.

2012 Coche-Bizouard Bourgogne Blanc

Chardonnay more

7/31/2015 - Oh Dae-su wrote: 87 points

Dieser ist „nur“ vom Cousin - und wenn ich mich richtig erinnere auch Bandkollegen - Alain Coche bzw. mittlerweile von dessen Sohn Fabien. Hergestellt wurde er aus verschiedenen im Schnitt 40 Jahre alten Meursault-(An)Grenzgebiet-Lagen. Riechen tut er nach Käsekuchen mit Rosinen inklusive ein paar versprengten Kirschen. Daneben präsentieren sich die Zitronen eher „schalig“ und weniger vom eigentlichen Fruchtfleisch geprägt. Am Gaumen wirkt er straff, sehr anständig „steinig“, ziemlich stramm säurebetont, schlank, relativ wenig vom Holz beeinflusst und mehr grün apfelig als zitronig. Vielleicht auch ein wenig unreife Honigmelone und schwach-mandeliges Marzipan. Soweit eher ein knackiger als ein schmelziger Chardonnay. Alles in allem noch sehr grün hinter den Ohren. Wie es anzunehmen war. Ich bin halt zu neugierig. Mal schaun wie er in ein paar Jahren sein wird … gute Anlagen hat er allemal.

Vin de Table Français Red Rhone Blend more

7/31/2015 - AdamL Likes this wine: 89 points

Lighter in color than expected; I guess I would call it ruby. On the nose, I was hit with a very distinctive aroma of orange blossom, almost like someone dumped a bottle of orange flower water into the tank before bottling- the most floral red I've ever smelled. On the palate, also pretty light, some red fruit, also some more of the floral aromas coming through; fairly balanced. Not bad, but not entirely what I was expecting from a CdR.

Well, I guess this is sort of OK - it has that "bready" thing going on in the nose which I don't much care for - deep purple - a bit thin in the mouth - but a decent enough finish - not my kind of wine, I think.

Drinking spectacularly well now and with perhaps more development to come. Struck match on the nose with stone fruits and a long impressive finish. Got to be one of the best value wines in Australia.
