Half hour decant. Served quite cool. Notes from memory. Medium yellow with golden notes. Bouquet somewhat diminished with chilling but nevertheless golden orchard fruits in evidence. Brisk attack unfolding into a panoply of citrus, mango and minerality with a faint petrol note.
I wouldn't call this wine one dimensional by any means. I find good complexity and depth here. Brilliant wine making and very satisfying for all around the table.
Couleur soutenue correspondant à l'évolution et au millésime certainement. Arômes bien nets et expressifs, agrumes confits, fruits exotiques, pointe d'hydrocarbure à peine décelable, en évolution. Au palais, c'est sec, bien que riche, avec du corps, une intensité prononcée de saveurs portant sur la papaye, la mangue, en finale une pointe de minéralité qui resserre la bouche mais rien de déséquilibré, it's a crowd pleaser, au moins ce soir-là.
much better effort out of a mag , drinking nicely will do for another say 10 years seems 1 dimentional again but ok not in same devision as the brun or la bourn auction dry 09 i had at xmas but actually a nice ass wine tonight syb
Cellarhand Riesling Tasting: Ripe nose - peach, pear and pineapple as well as some celery and toast. Palate reflects that ripeness, there is a boldness to the one and it takes a second to adjust your mindset to the wine, but once I did it was quite lovely.
no this 09 gg misses it !! not great balance and bitter not in the same division as the 09 brun or the 09 la borne auction dry cru riesling , it may mellow a little but i would not buy this again and several others in same vintage much better its not a bad wine just mono no layers no heart and soul !
