Very very good! At this stage much more enjoyable than 08. Open, wonderful buttery and initially very strawberry. Best thing is the fantastic balance and long sweet lemon aftertaste. Very sensual. Now I understand why Belle Epoque is such an iconic wine. Add more complexity and it would close in on the best champagnes I have ever tasted.

Have to agree, a total knockout! Above all else elegance!
One of the best bottles of Champagne I have ever had.

Hold! Monster acidity and length. Reductive. For me all about potential. I hope it will come together and become a little more gentle with time. I will revisit in 5 years. Dont drink if you have an ulcer.

Very attractive! Ethereal and profound. Wonderful balance plus complexity and length. A different wine and a different level compared with two years ago. One of these wine moments. Recommended music to have with this nectar: Carl Maria Von Weber, Max Raabe or Nick Drake, or all three of them.

Wonderful! Purity, balance, freshness, complexity, length. Concentrated and profound yet feather light. Made for the long run. Aaaah, Riesling, Queen of grapes!

Not bad but young, fruit forward and lacking complexity. I hope this will be more fun to drink in 5 years. Hold.

Verkligt massiv frukt, imponerande längd med en syra som dansar över tungan, anar ett underbart djup under ytan men ännu mkt ungt. Ett vin av mkt hög klass. Inbillar mig att detta når platåfas först om 5-10 år. Har ni flera flaskor: testa en nu men för guds skull spara några flaskor också.

Underbar parfym - som en sensuell fransyska som fladdrar förbi, elegant mineral, smultron som tydligaste fruktnot, ett speciellt vin! Franska Residenset i Sthlm, Franska Vinlistan

Still young. Muted at first. Much better after 2 hours in the glass. When it opened up it was a very drinkable wine with all the classic Pauillac characteristica.

Second best bottle of the evening. Still young. A powerful wine. Give it 5 more years for it to develop and become more balanced and an even better wine.

Wonderful wine. Develops considerably over time in the glass. Above all balance. And elegance. One of the best wine I have ever tasted. This is what great wine is all about. Wow!

Piptobak, liten örtighet, sötlakrits, mörka bär och, inbillar vi oss, kryddor från mellanöstern såsom saffran. Läcker munkänsla. Kraft, komplexitet, eleganta fat. Funkade mer än väl till kvalitetskebab. Pur drickglädje!

Beautiful Pinot dominated (80%) Champagne. Clean and elegant character. Orange peel, honey and yellow plums on the nose. Completed with a touch of ginger on the palate. Great quality/price ratio. Paired perfectly with seared foie gras, toast, roasted hazelnuts and white pepper.

Beautiful amber color. Tangerine, orange blossom, ripe yellow apples, ginger and cloudberry on the nose. Oxidative. Good acidity and aging potential. A great Rioja experience. I will try to get hold of a few more bottles from this producer!

Denna flaska inte på prestigenivå dessvärre. Salt som en Muscadet och nästan kladdig mousse. Behållningen var hur funky den var. I skuggan av eleganta 2002 som provades parallellt.

Hög kvalitet och alla klassiska toner på plats men inget wow i just denna flaska. Kommer med tid högst sannolikt. Betydligt bättre än 2003 vi provade parallellt som var salt som en Muscadet och betydligt mindre elegant med en nästa kladdig mousse, dålig flaska? Sämre årgång!

Sommaren största vinupplevelse. Ett komplext vin. Frukt, mineral, blommor, kryddor i ett intrikat samspel. Rent och klingande. Underbart rund och lätt oljig munkänsla. Jag läser om reading between the wines. Detta är vad Terry Theise talar om.

En dimma av reduktivt svavel. Därunder många godsaker. Spara och ta fram om några år så har röken kanske skingrats.

Jmf med Keller Limestone Kabinett Goldkapsel.
Lätt volatila gummitoner i första sniffarna, exotisk frukt, i munnen mullig passionsfrukt. Gulare och bredare än Keller, Keller fräschare, grönare, mer stringent syra och en fin spritsighet som Maximin saknar. Med värme ökar skillnaderna. Maximin betydligt öppnare, smöriga popcorn och en mer viskös munkänsla jmf Keller som är mer mineraldriven och renare i känslan.

Nygräddad citronmarrängpaj, kaprifol, citron och lime zest med en subtil mineralitet. Söt för att vara en extra brut. Fin munkänsla och vikt.

Elegant Riesling-gummi. Ojästa lussekatter. Passionsfrukt. Rosenkvitten. Riktig lång och snygg avslutning med kanonsyra. Tack för tipset Lukas.

Dag 2 fin doft av rabarber.

Saknar komplexitet i denna flaska. Doftar intensivt av blåbärssylt. Lite tungfotad.

Doftar som om sälta från havet flyter in över varm tallskog, fält av rosmarin, körsbär, viol och sommarmogna jordgubbar. Klunkvänligt och spänstigt. Ett älskvärt vin.

Typisk sydfransk varmkryddig bukett. Balanserat och tillgängligt för att vara ett så kraftigt vin. Ingen alkoholvärme att tala om. Bra.

Tour de France, Grappe.
Ann: stall, hästhår, hö, träns. Bristande koncentration. Kort.
Pär: Ointegrerad ek som hovrade över vobbligt vin. Mejerismöret hängde som en dimma över ytan. Sannolikt hade luftning gjort sitt till. Dyrt för vad man får när det är som denna flaska.

Tour de France, Grappe. Typisk Chinon. En grön paprika på en dammig grusväg. Koncentrerad blyerts. Viol. Lite svag i eftersmaken. Ändå god.

Till anka. "Full throttle". Varm årgång. Svarta vinbär. Choklad. Ceder. Blyerts. Kaffe. Klassiska Bdx notes. Behöver luft, utvecklas till det bättre under en timme.
Tät genom hela paletten.

Nose: intense red fruit, cherry, violet pastill, lavender, minerality which is like a warm dusty gravel road, also iron. A little bit of yeasty banana which is a minus, due to youth?
Palate: smooth start, then a nice balanced intensity with a fairly prominent warmth, length is good.
A well structured and interesting food wine, worked really well with deer.
A slight organic feel about it and definitely a good representative of the region. Will probably age pretty well for some years. We visited the vineyard in June 2016, it is a beautiful place. The vines and vineyards seem harmonious.

Mature, slightly over the hill. Almost no bubbles left. Nose: figs, cloudberries. Palate: a bit short, slightly bitter. Better on the nose.

Impressive vigour and youth for a 30 year old dry white wine. Prominent, high class wood balanced by a fresh and youthful acid. Nose is initially powdered sugar. Very good.

Open. Eucalyptus, licorice, leather, and after some time loads of roasted coffee. Fairly light and lacking some in concentration, the aftertaste could be longer.

The smell of an oncoming summer rain. The highly intensive perfume initially really reminds me of ozon. After that waves of high quality fruit, a whiff of saffron and blue cheese. Great viscous texture, bright acidity, very clean and all about quality. Long finish. Ready but with plenty of life ahead. Very good.
