Community Tasting Notes 5

August 29, 2014 - Developed, elegant nose, very minerally with granite, hints of oyster. Citrus, grape and modelling clay. Gently oaky. Very appealing and fresh.
Fullish, spicy, toasty oaky palate. Still austere in style but with developed aromas. Dry, determined, balanced, well-structured. Very good wine.
Tasted blind, this turned out to be the second bottle of the same wine. This was much more steely and austere. This could be cellared further. The producer has a solid reputation, but no star from Clive Coates. To taste a ready Perrières for 45 Euro must be considered a bargain.

August 29, 2014 - Harmonius and quite sublime and fat nose. Good depth. Modelling clay minerality, yellow pears and oily impression. Almost tropical in the fruit expression.
Fullish, generous, broad palate. Good grip. Medium-long finish. Lovely spicy oakiness, but fruit to handle it. Balance and almost tropical fruit. Is there just a hint of oxidative flavours?
Tasted blind, most of us guessed Chassagne. Unknown to us an identical bottle bought at the same french supermarket showed up in the same flight and it showed completely different. This particular bottle was fully ready.
October 22, 2013 - Tasted at the Domaine. Gorgeous wine. Pure pleasure. Apple, pear, stones and spice. Long, long on the finish. Fully in the zone right now.

February 23, 2013 - This is a superb wine. It has a warm nose full of butterscotch, apples, a touch of marzipan and a hint of provence herbs. On that palate this wine has medium + acidity, a lush mouthfeel with flavors of creamy pineapple, pears, spice and limestone. It is a very well balanced wine that will continue to excite your tastebuds long after you've swallowed it.
August 6, 2012 - A little disappointing after the Bruno Colin Puligny that came ahead of it. Richer on the palate, but lacked a little bit of focus and was missing the minerality that I was expecting. Tasted more like a 2006 than a 2007. C+/B-
