Kept under condition 2 since 2015 (see my profile). Color: dark purple. Nice mature notes in nose and taste on the fifth day, together with fruit and an OK acidity. Rather concentrated. At the first day still a bit of tannins. With only 13,5% alcohol a bit/rather burning. This wine can be drunk now, but I guess that further aging (one year) might be beneficial. So far it does not really convince me. (87-)88.

No formal notes. Better at day five than at day one. Better on its own than with food. At day five: 89

From a 37,5 cl bottle. Color: (very) light yellow. Nose: mineral-citrus. Taste: refined apple and citrus, embedded in fine kimmeridgien minerality, veryg good acidty; all very welll balanced. The sauvignon-blanc alternative for the chardonnay-Chablis. An excellent wine! Ready to be drunk. 90-91.

Color: very dark purple. Nose: black berry, cedar and at the fifth day an animal note.; some complexity. Taste: red cherry and black berry. Still some drying, unresolved tannins. Average acidity and some complexity. Laurel and licorice in the finish. Rather full-bodied. It took three hours before it fully opened up. Hard to imagine what will be the result of further aging of this wine. After three hours 90(-91).

Color: light yellow. Nose: rather faint but classy, with bread and a very light note of oak. Taste: looking back from the sixth day to the first: rather closed, and off-dry. At the sixth day it showed its class: (sweet apple rather complex, rather well balanced. At the seventh it was less good. First day 88, sixth 90-91.

Nose: modest sous-bois and an ethereal herbal note. Taste: red cherry and strawberry. At the first day wit food some unresolved tannins, but at the third day they were almost fully resolved - more than with the last bottle. Some mature note. Like last time better on its own than with food (spaghetti with mushrooms and Parmesan cheese). Attractive. Other bottles still might benefit of one or two yeras of aging. 90-91.

Modest but attractive sous-bois and mushroom in the nose. Rather lively red berry- and red cherry-fruit and fine, ripe tannins. Again an attractive vintage of this wine after 2013. Maybe a bit better after a year or so. (88-)89.

At the first day bread and fruit in the nice nose. In the taste a bit sharp acidity was rather prominent which made the wine unbalanced. At the sixth day more balanced. First day 85-86 (nose 88), sixth day 86-87. Will probably benefit from further aging (two years from now?)

Nose: floral with cherry-fruit. Taste: cherry-fruit, maybe with a bit of raspberry or strawberry. Also the quite prominent floral note of the nose, and wit a bit of an anise-like note. Good acidity. All well balanced. Just a very little bit of noticeable tannins. At later days also with paprika in the nose and liquorice in the taste. This wine has not entered its drinking window lang ago, might well be drunk now, but might also gain some quality with ageing (one, two years?). 88.

Popped and poured, not aerated. Drunk in the Riedel Chardonnay-glass, which gave a more powerful taste than in the Riedel Chassagne-glass. Color: (light-)yellow. Nose: a bit grassy with a undifferentiated fruity note. Taste: some oak, undifferentiated fruit and a lively acidity, above all with a lot of energy, but a bit closed. At the fourth day the nose was a bit grassy, the taste more open, with notes of lychee and peach. Very precise and energetic. For me after the 2014 and 2017 another excellent vintage of this wine. Like a flower in the bud, this will need at least one, more probably two years of cellaring, but with decanting it can also be drunk now. At the fourth day 91-92.

Like last time. Only the tannins tasted more sweet and a bit flaw; about like with the Aurelien Vetdet "en Luteniere", also a generic red Burgundy from 2015. Typical for the tannins of red Burgundy 2015?

Right after opening nose and taste were dominated by smoky wood. Already nice at the first day, but at the fourth tis wine really blossemed with vivid yellow fruit in the taste (passion fruit, peach and apple), a nice acidity making it nicely precise. So not with the round taste and creaminess I experienced in Burgundy 2017 so far. A nice surprise. 90-91.

Taste: the fruit in this wine was rather dominated by acidity and unripe tannins, but it had some nice mature notes. I doubt whether further aging will lead to a better taste. But on the other had: why not try? Clearly less good than the very nice 2009. 88(-89).

Decated for about three hours. Just after decanting plum in the nose. In the taste also cherry-notes. Most prominent were the rather heavy, massive tannins. They still are resolving, which gave a certain sweetness in the taste in this phase. Probably the will add secondary/tertiary flavours to the taste. I am curious whether they will add to the quality as well before the fruit will disappear. Because they are not well intergated yet: for now 87-88.

Taste: notes of fruit like banana and maybe also pineapple. Acidity was very modest, but this is probably not made as a fresh wine. A peculiar, dry, round and full wine. We had it with dinner and it took some time over several days to acknowledge that this is a wine with an own character and attractiveness. 88

Precise fruit in the nose, a bit leaning towards herbs. Rather full and weighty, off-dry riesling. A classy riesling, to be discovered on its own preferably. Be sure to drink this cold. 89.

Creamy nose. Peach and vanilla in the buttery taste. Typical 2017 white Burgundy profile. 85

Bread and toast besides raspebrry and cherry in the taste. Good acidty, well balanced. At the fift day the smokey charcter of the nose dominated the fruit. A burgundian-made pinot noir, lacking the depth of a Burgundy, but still very complete. The best Dutch wine for me so far. 89-90.

Juicy, fruity wine with hints of chocolate, maybe also sage, smoke, cedar and sage. Appropriate acidty, good balance. The tannins were almost fully resolved. Attractive generic Burgundy. (87-)88.

Fifth bottle of this wine. Taste: quite juicy red and dark fruit. Despite the hot year mineral, fresh and with good acidity. Despite some mature notes this wine can get better with some more years of keeping. It seems that Medoc 2009 needs a rather long time of keeping, more or less like 2005 be it a bit shorter. Already 88(-89), potentially 88+.

At the fifthe day: Nose: a grassy note. Taste: slightly sweet apple, grassiness and english liquorice, all very well balanced and with some depth. The finish was a bit numb. Better with pasta with roasted aubergine and tomatoes with Parmesan cheese than with maclerel with goosebrry-compote and star-anise. Cabernet blanc is often compared to sauvignon blanc, but it lacks the fresh, vivid sharpness of its taste. Nevertheless this is a really good wine. Another surpise from the Netherlands

Color: very dark ruby. Nose: hints of laurel, iodine, grass, a fresh herb like rosemary and fruit. Taste: plum and cherry and on the first day still a noticeable amount of fine tannins and a modest acidity, but already showing its finesse. At the third day the tannins were more resolved, with a nice balance and velvety texture. This is not a spectacular wine in any way, but more refined and friendly - more or less the profile of Medoc 2005. I guess, that it has a potential for further development. Next bottle not before 2023. For now: 89, potentially 90+.

A nice amount of oak, that was not integrated already. Nice, zesty acidity with apple, reminding at a white Burgundy 2014, that was a bit slender, causing a lack in taste in the mid-palate. Nevertheless this wine showed some good promise. At the third day already much better, at the fifth day really good. At the first day potentially 88+, at the fifth 89-90.

Taste: cherry and a bit of red berry, with just an acidity to make this wine fresh, just that amount of class that makes it interesting. Tannins are resolved now. Cote de Nuits 2012 appears to need quite a time in the cellar to reach that. 88.

A biological wine without chemical additives, made of a blend of (amongst other Johanniter and Souvignier Gris) from the mid part of Noord Brabant, the Netherlands. Color: rather golden, with a hint of rose. Nose: herbs and a bit of fruit. Taste: apple and a bit of pear and/or gooseberry, a rather prominent herbal note and a rather rustic acidity At first the finish was fully dominated by a “flat” acidity, but after a while with a note of licorice. A rather pleasant wine. A match with salads? 85-86.

Clor: light yellow-green. Nose: refined fruity with a refined (not sharp), slightly grassy and herbal note. Taste: good fruit (peach and appleand a lemon-like note) and a good acidity. The oak was already quite well integrated. An excellent wine! Maybe it will be still more balnced when the oak will be fully integrated afer some more time of keeping (two years?). Like Jancis Robinson wrote: 2015 white Pessac Leognan is a vintage for keeping. 92

A blend of helios, riesel, cabernet blanc and muscaris grapes from a farmer in Groesbeek, Gelderland, vinified by Chateau Amsterdam. In the nose gooseberry and fresh grass. In the taste also gooseberry. Good acidity. One recognises the typical muscaris-note, the refinement of which give this wine an attractive balance while the other grapes in the blend seem to make it rather big and a bit numb. Fresh, attractive wine. 87(-88).

Kept under condition 2 since about 2016 (see my profile). Promising, nice nose. The taste was determined by quite an amount of good fruit, and above all a lot of structure and rather much unresolved tannins, with quite a lot of alcohol. Some complexity. A big wine. At the first day this wine tasted like a Medoc, at the second a bit less. Maybe the tannins will resolve but not before least two years, I guess. 88-89.

Kept since about 2013, the first years under condition 1, about the last three years under condition 2 (see my profile). Very dark ruby-purple color. Nice mature nose. In the taste good fruit, nice mature notes and a good acidity. Still the tannins were not fully resolved. Clearly more develloped than last time. Quite some complexity. Very nice. When kept the way I have, this wine can be drunk now and at least next two years. 88-89.

At the first day still dominated by rather much tannins, that even caused a bit of nausea. Bit at the second day rather nice red fruit came up with some nice mature notes., and the tannins had mostly disappeared. When I would have another bottle, I would keep it for one or two more years. At the second day: 87(-88).

The bottle was opened about one hour before drinking, not decanted. Color: clear red. Nose: at the second day a bit sous-bois and leather. Taste: Opened up in the glass at the first day after half an hour, with cherry, raspberry and strawberry, a bit creamy. After that time with food rather well balanced. At the second day fine but slightly drying tannins were noticeable and the alcohol was with 14% a bit burning. A bit of licorice in the finsh. One noticed that this wine was not well integrated yet either. Quite young now; I guess that this wine will be better after one or two years of keeping from now. More like a German spatburgunder than a Burgundy. Potentially 88(-89)+.

Color: very dark purple with a ruby hue, without orange rims. Nose: rich, very nice mature notes: cigar-box, mushrooms and a bit of brett. At the first day the taste followed the nose. On its own with some fruit, but with food the fruit was almost gone. But at the third day it opened up after a while in the glass, although there still was not much fruit. Also after more than twenty years still some drying tannins. A rather classy (and classic?) St. Julien. I think I would keep another bottle for two or three more years should be drunk now. Very nice. (91-)92.

Color: light yellow, a bit greenish. Nose: some fruit (apple), but a woody note was more prominent. The taste followed the nose; there seemed some rhubarb in it. The acidity was rather prominent. The mid-palate was rather tough, the finish more balanced. Over all not an unpleasant wine. 83.

Made of the muskateller-grape. Color: white-yellow. Nose: very refined muscat-nose. Taste: very light fruit (peach, apple), very refined herbs. A refined, dry muscat, drunk with kings-mackerel with a sauce of mustard and tarragon. It matched both the mustard and tarragon in the sauce very well. A nice surprise. (87-)88.

Kept under condition 1 since about 2016 (see my profile). Color: (light-)ruby. Not decanted. Taste: at the first day rather closed with some promising good fruit and depth, but still with rather much drying tannins. Nevertheless there seemed a good potential. At the third day more open, with more quite powerfull fruit. Not to open a next bottle before three to five years of keeping, otherwise this wine will need a decant of at least six hours. Potential 91+.
