Acker BYO 2012 (Tribeca Grill, Tribeca, NY): Nose: dried red flowers with a touch of blood, a touch of chemical. Sweet, sauvage. Really special on the palate: cola and brown sugar, roast meat, saline, tomato. Just beautiful with silky tannins all the way through. Elegant and perfumed with a long gentle sweet brown finish. Nose - 4-4.5/6, Palate - 6/6, Finish - 5.5-6/6, Je Ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 17-18/20.
Garnet color with fading at the edges. Subtle spice on the nose with some dried cherry, cranberry, and rhubarb. Palate was quite nice with somewhat lean red fruits and good spice. Great finish with very nice acidity.
Lieu-dit Cru Richebourg Dinner (Primehouse - Chicago IL): Audouzed 4+ hours before poured. Pale color, clearly browning. Slightly sweet character throughout the flavor profile, with bit a caramel in particular on the finish. Earthy and elegant, but noticeably short. One person who has had this wine before felt it wasn’t showing as well as other bottles.
