Needs a good 30 minutes post open to get its stride and develop . Would not suggest decanting but just let it breath a bit. Very much a Riesling, light caramel notes, light petrolly, good fruit core. Firm core of polished acidity, elegant and vibrant still, layered and a class act. Gives a feeling at times it has residual sugar but really it's just the evolution of it we think. 93
Mad for Magnums (Ai Fiori - New York NY): From magnum. Slightly tropical fruit aromas with lots of petrol character and a bit of lychee. Lush, ripe, forward and powerful on palate with a huge spice element start-to-finish. Definitely shorter and less interesting when revisited 4 hours later at the conclusion of dinner.

(Clos St. Hune) Ethereal aromas of minerals. Just tons of complex minerals and a soft citrusy palate with great concentration. Kept getting better as it aerated. The softest Hune I have ever had. Seemed mature but in now way of going downhill anytime soon.
