Community Tasting Note

  • Xavier Auerbach wrote: 93 points

    February 8, 2020 - A private lunch (Restaurant Rijks *, Amsterdam, NL): An unvintaged ‘assemblage’ composed of casks from 2018 (48%), 2017 (29%), 2016 (12%), 2015 (9%) & 2012 (2%), bottled 28 September 2018. Exclusively sourced from the Hoffmann’s ‘Dallwitz’ vineyard from vines planted in 1996, 1995, 1960 & the oldest vines planted prior to 1912, 6415 bottles produced. Remarkably linear and pure style, very much Northern Rhône, cool and fresh but without the wildness of the granite minerality, energetic but polished, civilised and gentle, elegant tannins, roses and warm spices, violets, excellent persistence, eucalyptus finish.

    While there are a lot of famous names charging an arm and a leg for their top wines, there are a number of producers like Fraser, who are making great wine at fair prices.
