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
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 !
Decanted for roughly 90 minutes before tasting. Medium straw colour. Intensely fragrant nose with hints of tropical fruits, honey, floral perfume, spices and salty butterscotch. Rich and powerful palate with a fair bit of (perceived) sweetness. Could have done with a bit more acidity to counter the massive flavours. Much more “in your face” than the beautiful 07 I had a while back, and consequently in my view not as good. By all means enjoyable, but it lacks the understated elegance and balance this wine delivers at its best. Even though there’s probably not enough structure to support a truly long life, I’ll still let my last bottle rest for another few years and hope it settles down a touch.
