Alsace tasting at home - I found this a near perfect wine, and an amazing experience. Clear gold color in glass. Wonderful citrus/mineral nose with moderate diesel aromas, extremely complex. Tastes/ aromas are so complex that its really difficult to describe. Bone dry finish. This is just an amazing expression of wine, group was in complete agreement.
Last of 8 bottles with consistently good notes but for pre and penultimate bottles. This was right back on form, lightish bright yellow, classy nose with petrol whiff and hall-mark chalky minerality (cf Mittelbergheim's Brandluft lieu-dit) and flowers, lightish on palate but nice balance and freshness, complex and persistent, fully mature and towards end of life I suspect for an offish vintage. Fine plus (18/20).
Light golden colour, watery edge. Very sceptical when opening the bottle - the cork had a serious layer of mold and the top 1 cm of the cork was starting to go into pieces.
Opening the bottle I was quickly relaxed - clean and clear scents; flint/minerals, hot stones, hints of apple/pear and a touch of apricots/peaches. Nice fruit, not enormous and a solid acid still. Bone dry and a good long finish. 92 is not the finest year for St. Hune (or Alsace in general), but given the age this was nice. No need to wait any more, and I think it should be drunk over the short term.
Tasted November 24, 2006 at an offline. Opened and served immediately in a Spiegelau Authentis Weiss Wein glass. Light yellow color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Light petrol aromas that quickly blew off giving way to some aromas of peaches, orange blossoms and acacia flowers. Flavors of peaches and light citrus notes over a minerally base. Good balance. Drink over the short term.
