Community Tasting Notes 7

June 27, 2014 - HDH auction tasting at Tru; 6/27/2014-6/28/2014 (Chicago, IL): A very seductive nose with some caramel and baked green apple notes. The palate has moderate intensity with a prominent note of licorice. Quite good, but I feel this is lacking a bit of complexity, and there's really nothing in this wine that's out of the ordinary. You can do so much better at this price.

December 2, 2013 - 高比例的「Chardonnay」釀造出的一種很有氣勢的大型香檳風格，初入口的口感結構很莊嚴，氣泡溫和穩定，展現白中白的嚴肅感，這應該就是羅斯柴爾家族形塑的帝王形象吧!酸度頗為明顯，讓酒體與香氣十分持久，尤其可以感受在喉嚨所留下香檳酒氣，這款酒很明顯地散發出Chardonnay葡萄釀製香檳時所散發出的帶有礦石感的葡萄香氣。香氣部分是明顯而優雅的花香，並帶有些微柑橘，入口結構有如白色殿堂，清楚而準確，風格很純淨以白丘的Chardonnay葡萄香氣為主，乾淨！中後段風味更為雅緻細膩，酸度蠻高，很能支撐酒體強度與長度，呼吸後，酒風轉較柔媚，略帶干果風味，毫無苦味。這款無年份白中白香檳的結構很好，應該還有不小的陳年實力！

April 19, 2013 - Dinner with Paul Goldschmidt, the proprietor of Chateau Vray Croix de Gay at Ripple (Ripple Restaurant in DC): White fruits, airy, graphite, mineral and smoke. Incredibly fine mousse, air almost evaporate once touching the palate, medium acidity. Seems a bit simple.

December 8, 2012 - HDH auction tasting at Tru (Chicago, IL): Predominantly a fruity-fresh nose of green apples, grapefruit, and a touch of almond. On the palate, this is an easy-going, drinkable blanc-de-blancs. Quite fruity and zesty, there is an intense malic acid vein that goes from beginning to end.
