Dark pineapple, dried jackfruit. Overall an impression of dried yellow tropical fruits. Quite viscous. Acid can't quite stand up to the fruit notes. A tad hot for my palate, not harsh, but too hot. The finish is marred by the alcohol
Exclusive dinner with eight friends and 22 special wines.: In the bouquet beautifully ripe and soft yellow and white tropical fruits as well as minerals. On the palate lush and soft yellow fruits as well. Beautiful and fresh acidity. Full bodied and luxurious wine with an enormous length.
It is all about the finish this time- intense stone notes that confuse and tease the mind-taste bud connection.. Mind-blowing depth and length (probably a minute) for a white wine. Needs major decant, I should have waited another 5 years to drink but was craving a white hermitage. Subdued nose of white flowers, melon and citrus. Palate has tart fruit, stone, a touch of honey and some heat. So unique, cerebral and very special.
Intense gold. Ripe yellow fruits, half dry yellow fruits, almond paste, a hint of burnt sugar, flowers and mineral. A big scale wine, intense ripe yellow fruit driven palate impression, good acidity and nice length. A hint of alcohol both in the nose and the palate which is not bothersome. It evolved nicely with air. A very good but I don’t see myself rating this 100.
A private tasting and dinner (Restaurant Bolenius, Amsterdam, NL): Rich but fresh, much better balance and energy than the big 2000, honeysuckle, salted butter and minerals, a very concentrated wine with the elegance of a cooler vintage; excellent length and depth. Continues to improve throughout the evening. Great potential.
