  • 1983 Weingut Max Ferd. Richter Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese

    At 31+ years of age, this Auslese has developed excellent complexity on the nose - telltale diesel/petrol leaps out. On the palate, the wine has plenty of body, depth and fruit, but it has shed its Auslese-level the point where the finish shows as dry/minerally. It is the finish that is a touch disappointing - not in the dryness, but it seems just a bit short/clipped. Overall a nice wine, shared with my pal who has 1983 as a birthyear (and other friends) for his birthday.

  • 2008 Domaine d'Eugénie Vosne-Romanée

    Very solid village wine. Spicy and deep nose - very classic. Simultaneously leans to the black fruit side of the spectrum, but still has the 2008 crunchiness and acid bite in the mouth. On entry the palate is silky with rich blackberries showing, but the wine gains structure in the mouth and shows solid tannins and acid. The finish is mouthwatering cranberry. All of this action can seem a bit disjointed at times, but with a couple hours of air the wine starts to knit together. Very nice wine. Likely better with some more years - still young.

  • 2007 Yves Boyer-Martenot Meursault 1er Cru Charmes

    Very pleased with this wine. It was poured alongside a 2007 Leflaive PM Clavoillon (also in top form), and this Meursault held its own wonderfully. That is quite an accomplishment, given that this wine runs only about half the price. Everyone present thought this showed typicity in spades - this was classic Meursault in all the right ways. Nice lift from those exceptional 2007 acids. But still an inviting fatness that tells you this is Meursault after all. Great mouthfeel. (Note that I posted an earlier note on a slightly premoxed bottle of this wine that was bought at the same time. This one had no hint of premox whatsoever, and showed as young and promising...thankfully!)
