Taut and tensile yet elegant and understated, this offers tremendous focus and clarity. The nose is refined, where ripe gooseberry and lychee aromas are followed by lemon-lime, minerals, and spices. The palate follows suit, exhibiting fine balance, a smooth texture, a lick of salt, and granitic minerality on the finish. This is all class.

Litt (over)modne epler, men mest gjærbakst på duft, noe dadler? Frisk i munnen med delikate bobler og herlig fylde. Bittert epleskall i ettersmaken. Vedlig bra standard-champagne.

2011 Domaine du Collier Saumur La Charpentrie Rouge

Cabernet Franc more

5/28/2015 - mattyboy_ Likes this wine: 94 points

While clearly young, this is very much approachable. I must say without stating the obvious lineage of this wine, that the pedigree is there and the wine is cut from the same <insert Loire cult/unicorn wine producer here> cloth.
The wine is like a fine jewel, incredibly polished with a silky Burgundian texture and sensuous nature. In the mouth it has poise, transparency and freshness. Very complex. The aroma marries earthy and gaminess with floral and wild berry flavors. You can literally see into the future, not guess, but actually see how this will gather even more complexity as it ages. This wine is a study for what exceptional cab franc is or could be. 94-96 pts.

2006 Beringer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve

Napa Valley more

5/28/2015 - oenophilemoose wrote: 92 points

Decanted for two hours (suggest three or four at this stage), consumed over the next three hours. Seemed open and gain more depth and richness with time. Mid to full bodied with juicy acidity on the finish. Not a very good QPR.

2012 Talbott Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands

more

5/27/2015 - Life At Your Leisure wrote: 91 points

Pale gold color with a transparent edge. The nose is perfumed with notes of lemon peel, white flowers and mild toasted caramel/toffee. The palate is brighter compared to other vinateges that tend to be buttery. Flavors of smoked orange, pear, green apple skin, caramel, and toasted wheat form the core. Finishes with hints of mineral salts and citrus. Drink now until 2022.
