2014 Schumann Nägler Riesling

The 'Lenz' version, see my previous note of the Rheingau Riesling Trocken, most likely the same wine, and for sure the same impression.

2010 Dynasty Imperial Horse Chardonnay

Ningxia more

Imperial horse? but as the label said chardonnay, although it looked more like a sauvignon with a lot of earthiness, chunky acidity; drinkable, but not my type of wine

1989 Kopke Porto Vintage

Reconforming the 92 point of April 28. After three weeks in the opened bottle the last glass had not lost its qualities; still in shape, elegant and in a very good balance.

2010 Franz Künstler Hochheimer Stielweg Riesling Alte Reben

Rheingau more

5/18/2015 - FransS wrote: 88 points

This wine showed the restrictions of the 2010 vintage; more ripeness than expected (in colour and bouquet), still zest, purity and power, but at the edges the acidity became fragile. Drink this wine now!

2013 Domaine Catherine & Didier Tripoz Mâcon Charnay Clos des Tournons

Chardonnay more

5/18/2015 - FransS wrote: 87 points

With a few months of further development this will become a serious wine. There is a body, good acidity, a fresh chardonnay bouquet and an overall impression of a balanced wine.

Quite nice, starting with fresh red fruit, continuing in the taste (recognizable syrah) and a decent aftertaste; suggestion, drink this wine a bit cooled.

2014 Schumann Nägler Riesling

Rheingau more

Trocken; the nose is closed, not too dry, fresh, but the acidiity misses the refinement of e.g. Künstler.

2014 Franz Künstler Riesling Riesling Finesse

Rheingau more

5/17/2015 - FransS wrote: 87 points

If this is a starting point of Künstler than I'm happy with the more complex wines I've bought. This one had a very good acidity/backbone; maybe a bit too sweet, but the nearly massive body tried hard to absorb
the sweetness. This man (Gunter) knows how to make good wine.

2013 Markus Schneider Black Print

Pfalz Red Blend more

5/10/2015 - FransS wrote: 87 points

A very deep colour, in my opinion, caused by too much 'vin de presse' which explains the bitterness and the square tannins. Although time will help this wine to come in a certain balance, it will not become my favorite

Very developed, but lively, colour; starts with low acidity but in the aftertaste the acidity is there to support a firm backbone.

2013 C.A. Haussmann Schiefer Riesling Spätlese

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

5/10/2015 - FransS wrote: 83 points

This is the Schiefer Juwel! By far missing the concentration and compexity of Schiefer Juwel Kabinett trocken. This wine flutters over and is gone before you realize. Some sweetness in the nose and the taste but no counterpart in a decent acidity. I go for the Kabinett trocken!

In fact it is the Schiefer Juwel Riesling Kabinett trocken and it is quite a good wine, fresh, ripe taste and good acidity, concentrated, has depth and has a long aftertaste. Maybe better with some extra time in the bottle.

2013 Weingut Manz Chardonnay Kalkstein Spätlese Trocken

Germany more

5/10/2015 - FransS wrote: 91 points

My number 1,300 wine is close to weird; never before I have tasted such a chardonnay. In the nose and the front of the taste the wine is buttery with vanilla, grassy and has a solid backbone to keep the components together, At the end the alcohol is a bit obvious, but overall this wine search the confrontation with the taste buds. I will retaste this wine (Steigenberger Hotel Remarque Osnabrück).

2004 Domaine Coursodon St. Joseph L'Olivaie

Syrah more

5/7/2015 - FransS wrote: 93 points

Close to brilliant; the syrah shown with elegance, polished power and a fragrant acidity, all in superb balance. As noted before, like a top Burgundy, but to mention its origine, also as a top Rhône. From the ripe red fruit in the bouquet to the perfectly melted tannins this wine was a joy. Don't wait with your remaining bottles!

Not spoiled by a whiff of volatile acidity, but it changed this port too much to be representative. Everything under the acidiy looked quite balanced but the voluptuous body wasn't there.

Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes more

Only 86 points but satisfying the palate; pure fruit, fresh taste, round and nicely balanced. With a bit more power (in the next bottle?) it deserves an extra point. Less than € 9, so no complaints about the P/Q.

Not everybody's friend at this stage of development, showing lots of puppy fat and lots of bitters. I think the balance will come in due time (I guess half a year). The bouquet is already very 'condrieu'.

2001 Château La Louvière Blanc

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

5/1/2015 - FransS wrote: 91 points

A very perfumed bouquet, deep, vanilla, wood, bit waxy, creamy taste with white fruit, good balance and a long aftertaste, but, and I repeat, but don't wait any longer with your remaining bottles. After a night in the fridge this wine showed more acidity and therefore more age.
