Loire based dinner at Fuleen Seafood, Chinatown, NYC w/ Brad Kane and several others. A wonderful wine but placed in the wrong sequence for this evening. It would have shown much better earlier in the meal when we were still in the thick of eating the razor clams and other delicacies. Very floral and delicate in a typically Goldert way. 50+13+13+8.5+8.5 = 93
A night of stellar wines from Vouvray, Germany and Alsace. (Fuleen Seafood House): A terrific wine in its own right, it actually got a little lost in this lineup of high acid wines with lower alcohol levels. Beautiful and typical gangbuster Gewurz nose that's a fusillade of lychee, floral, ginger and nutmeg aromas. Sweet, pleasantly plump with an oily texture and like flavors as aromas. There's some bitterness and alcohol on the spicy finish. Quite nice and in good shape for a twenty-three year old Gewurz, even if it is a bit of a sluggard in this company. A-.
