This bottle drinks amazingly young. Really fresh! Nice red fruit, good structure with prominent minerality and quite long, fresh, cool finish.

The 2008 Gaston Chiquet Special Club is flat out delicious. Beautiful, ripe fruit, both yellow and green, cream, marzipan and some toast. Some chalk and smoky flintstone. Very well balanced. Third time I have this and it’s only getting better.

Always fun to taste and try mature champagne. Baking syruo, honey, wax, raisins, canned mushrooms and corn as well as a quite oxidized sherry-like note. Lacks intensity in the mouth and feels at times a bit watery. This is past it. More fun than good.

Riesling with friends (Näset, Göteborg): Decanted about 30 min. Initially closed with just sky high acidity and some mineral but most of the fruit and details in hiding. With time (and rising temperature) we get unripe peaches and lemon. Some minerals, but very little smoke or petrol. Very clean. Very, very long. Great stuff but needs more time in the cellar. Potential for at least 2 more points. Next bottle in 2020.

2015 Alfred Merkelbach Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett Mosel Saar Ruwer

Wine from the ‘spice garden’ for $30? I’ll take that all day long. The famed Ürziger Würzgarten (Spice Garden of Ürzig, in translation) is known for producing Rieslings with notable….well, spiciness (as one might expect), as well as earthy characteristics. This Kabinett showed hints of both qualities, though left much to be discovered in the future (hopefully!). More than anything, sharp acidity set the tone – not unpleasant, mind you, but certainly eye opening. With that acidity came typical citrus (lime, grapefruit, tangerine) and spice (white pepper, citrus rind) notes, while stony minerality braced both the nose and palate. The wine showed an interesting (and at first a touch off-putting, admittedly) cocoa note; some of that earthiness, perhaps, or simply an odd flavour in the particular bottle? With a day under its belt, things settled well and further notes of pineapple, green melon, and honey showed through. Solid quality; drinkable now, and structure for aging. It certainly seems to have the potential for a good future (though I’ve heard rumblings of plenty of bottle variation), so I’ve tucked a couple away to see what may come. If you’re a Riesling fan, for $30 I’d suggest you do the same!

Consistently great. Hard to stay away from these bottles. Glad to have a good stockpile. See previous notes.

This is just starting to show very well - still super fresh. Served blind (vintage only, bottle shape was a giveaway), some thought it was '04 or '05. I have two left and will probably wait at least five years until trying the next one.

From memory. Pale 10k gold. Lively spring rain nose of sweet apple and peach. Similar palate along with white grape deliciousness. Long sweetart finish.

Nose of pear, apricot and honeysuckle. On the palate rich and generous with wave upon wave of youthfull fruit. The acidity is quite high but partly masked by the fruit. Almost lightly sparkling in its sappiness this comes across as near off-dry. Minerals and lemon dominates towards the end, lingering for quite a while. Best von der fels I've seen yet!

An Affair to Remember ..Beautiful comes to mind. Hint of white pepper, hint of flower, strange disappearing act on the palate but stays on the lips. Just great rose, goes wonderfully with the presentation of diamonds to a beautiful woman.
