Best with food. Lost a bit of the barn. Still profound fennel in the taste. Have developed some elder notes both in nose and mouth.

No formal notes. Remember it to be ripe and settled. Great dept to the darker barrie notes. Great balance and still some acidity despite its progress.

This is way too much prunes. Ok wine, but the prunes are too overwhelming imo.

2011 Weingut Josef Leitz Rüdesheimer Berg Schloßberg Riesling Ehrenfels Trocken

Rheingau more

Not as fruit driven as other German Rieslings. Instead of the tropical fruit, this encounters some very spicy notes peppery, ginger and a little lemon or maybe more like lime actually. In the nose, you also find a bit of elderly flower. Accompanying the spicy notes is a gravel like minerality keeping the tastes very fresh and precise. To me a bit atypical Rheingau with the lack of tropical fruits. Still a wonderful effort.

ok, this is a really nice riesling. And excellent QPR. all classic riesling with lemon and tropical fruits. But also a strong minerality and power in terms tobacco, salty and peppery notes. Very intense and long lasting. I only bought 4 bottles, should have been 40.

No formal notes. This is a real nice everyday option. Typical italian but still the carb shows. IMO it is beginning to fade a little either entering a new stage or going down, time will show.

Compared to the 2010 this was more sweet (cola style) and with less red berries. I do not fancy that cola style, that reflects the score

2010 Domaine de la Renjarde Côtes du Rhône Villages Reserve de Cassagne

Red Rhone Blend more

12/14/2014 - Mmark wrote: 84 points

Dark purple and dense in glass
Nose day 1: Prunes, almost nothing else giving a very fla expression.
Mouth day 1: All about the prunes, rather flat.
Nose day 2: Prunes, again. But showing signs of meat, dried spices and crushed red berries. Improvement and maybe the Syrah showing.
Mouth day 2: Consistant with nose.

Assessment day 1: Flat, one D wine: 81 pts.
Assessment day 2: A bit more structure and more dimensions significantly better than day 1: 87

Indeed full bodied. This is really a good riesling. notes of citrus, green apples, ginger and a vague bit of sweetness in wrapped in a salty minerality harmonising and strengthen the various elements. Bought this at DKK 169 ($28), at that tag a real steal. Ready to drink now, but so vivid that it easily should last until 2018-2020 and perhaps even longer.

I tend to agree with BURGUND that this is strong and spicy. And too warm IMO. I was a bit disappointed also reflecting the score.

2011 Château d'Esclans Côtes de Provence

Rosé Blend more

10/7/2014 - Mmark wrote: 88 points

Very interesting. This have evolved but are still alive. It lost its previous fruitiness that have settled into a more savory, ripe strawberry/cherry taste. Never tried that with a rose before.
Color: Nice salmon
Nose: A bit reluctant. Little strawberries, cherries and tomato leafs.
Mouth: Savory ripe strawberries, red peppers, sligthly peppery.
Overall: Prefer the younger rose. But indeed interesting.

Could be closing down, but it hard the tell whether it will open again.

Color: Golden, partly from ageing and clear.
Nose: Nice mix of fresh green notes and a bit sweetness. Pear, newly moved lawn, white peach and galia melon.
Mouth: Not quite as masculine as Nigl's Private GV, but somewhat powerfull. Besides the green/sweet notes from the nose you also find hazelnut, some fatness (butter) and peppery notes.
Overall: Very good! And excellent pairing with turbot. Settled now and will probably evolve further, but why wait.

Another extrimist. This certainly got "wow-factor". It is not challenging, it is not multidimennsional nor refined. But just straight foreward a kick in the nuts big and bold. Still not my favourite, but I'm impressed with the power of this wine. one-dimenional, yes, but it takes you far down that one-dimension.

Ok, this is extreme. thik oil, pruns, raisins, almon and dark fruits. A little hint of a strange mixture of strawberries and coffee too. This continues in the mouth where the mouth feel just goes on and on. As you think it is gone a few seconds later you realise the taste is still there - talking 1minute+.

So much power, vanilla and warm jam. But too much. It will please some, but not me. The 85pts is giving trying to do a somewhat objective assessment, cause it is well made, but I do not fancy this kind of wine.
