Mouton, Ducru, Angelus, Scharecrow, Corra, ZH: Very nice showing for this wine. The nose is very big and seems like there is some Gewurz in the wine (not saying there is). Lychees are quite prominent, also papaya, tangerines and a bit of minerality. The palate is thick, unctuous although almost bone dry. Lots of tropical fruit and minerals. not a lot of acidity. Long finish. This was a delightful wine though I might have preferred more acidity. Very fruit laden. Worked well to start the night and the first course of food. Pop and pour, I revisited at the end of the night and it was more complex and just as vibrant.
Racy, vibrant, complex nose of minerals, citrus, apple, stone fruit, flowers, and a hint of petrol. The palate is just as intense and complex with minerals, white peach, rose petal, and a hint of caramel towards the end. Nice balance of strong acidity with a touch of sweetness; medium length finish. Drinking great now but should last for years.
