  • A fond farewell for Izzy and Rachel (Domaine Wine Storage, Chicago IL): Nose: The nose is very youthful and aromatic with green apples, white fruits, peaches, apricots, and some white florals. This is showing a lot of depth and class even at this nascent stage.

    Taste: Medium bodied with medium/high acidity. There is a litheness to the feel with green apples, white fruits, white florals, and some peaches. There is a lot of youth to the feel with a lot of depth too.

    Overall: This was from magnum and you can just sense that there is a tremendous wine. This would need a good amount of time even in 750 and it feels like it's a marathon runner.

  • Goodbye to Izzy & Rachel (and Meyer!) (Domaine Wine Storage - Chicago, IL): From magnum. Beautiful from start to finish. Izzy gave the magnum a shake and I think it really helped liven the wine up. The nose was gorgeous with loads of peaches, smokey mangos, and lychee. Fresh, pure, stately. I was surprised how accessible this was already.

  • Apple and grapefruit concentrate, lime, some mint, pure honey and refined minerality. Very nice, intense, but somewhat closed, promises dormant power in the deep. In the mouth full and muscular. Deep flavours, typical mosel colours, but still shows an aristocratic reticence, not giving all its values immediately. On the midpalate it forms dense core with fine minerality, with the vibrant, razor-precise acidity it is absolutely focused producing quite long, but not unbelievable lond finish. Very good balance. Primarily it was a structure-wine for me, with power and integrity, and only secondly a dessert-wine. Painfully young.

  • Vertical tasting of Prum, Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese GK 2009, 2010 and 2011. Textbook! The 2009 was the ripest and fattest. The 2010 had the highest acidity and was the most impressive wine today. The 2011 had less of everything. Same aromatic profile in all three wines. Clear producer footprint with the typical rotten egg nose of young Prüm (sulphur). Great showing, and great fun to compare these youngsters, very different and very true to the vintage!

  • TN from day 12. his was a tight wall of mineral on day one, to the point I could not get my head around the wine. I left 3 oz in a half blle, drank one of them two nights ago and the last bit tonight. Slightly more pale than the regular W-S auslese, but in all other aspects just a lot more. Huge floral and stone-slatiness on the nose. There is citrus, but also a little hints of tropical fruit, and almost honey in the background. Very pure and incredibly clean, with a huge amount of acidity that perfectly compliments the deep and pure clean fruit, with the RS perfectly balanced and easily carried by the brilliant acididty, that in spite of probably quite high numbers is in perfect balance. This comes off as completely effortless. Beautiful. I will not touch any of my other blles for a long long time. A magnificent auslese. 98pts
