About Me

Wine geek spending too much time tasting wines and writing notes and probably never able to get all in CT. (Sorry for Antarctica, difficult to drink your wines at the right temperature over there ;-), but for personal reasons I don’t want to be recognized that easily.) Anyway, if you focus in on my TN’s you can understand that I live in Europe.

Most (85%) of my longer TN’s and scores are (double) blind. I try to score all wines regardless of the price or label. All scores are for my personal reference and seeing many scores in CT, I realize I am conservative especially in the mid range. I do not score all wines. Whenever a wine is past its prime, it does not seem right to me to score this wine. In my TN I will mention this most of the time. My scores are also for the moment of tasting and in most cases not for the potential. Only if I am very certain about the potential, I might add a point, but in that case I will also mention that in my TN.

My “problem” is I like most well made wines. I can appreciate old and new world style of wines. I love good Bordeaux and well made, complex and harmonious Californian wines. I also really like good red and white Burgundy wines. Concentrated Australian or Spanish wines; lovely, as long as there is freshness and finesse as well. Oak, no problem, as long as it doesn’t dominate, but adds to the complexity. No oak; perfectly ok with me. Especially elegant German Rieslings with some age on them can be great; dry as well as sweet. But oaked Chardonnay from either Burgundy or California; I love it, as long as the fruit can handle the oak. And although I rarely drink more than one or two glasses of it, I also really like sweet dessert wines. especially when there is good acidity behind the sweetness. So in general Sauternes and Port wines are what I like. Oops and I forgot about Italy.... amongst others. But surely in Piemonte and Tuscany great wines are produced!

Finally; in the new CT there is the option to vote if you like a wine or not. I started voting since TN 7250 or so. And I am still not sure how to use this. For the time being I decided that this is the moment to include the price in my judgment. Of course I like 92+ wines, but if an 88 point wine has an excellent qpr, I will also vote that “I like it”. And in fact I forget to do this part when I put a TN in CT most of the time.

In the picture; This must be heaven. I am really curious if anyone recognizes this place.
