2009 Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett Mosel Saar Ruwer

Screwcap or Stelvin cap. 7.5% alcohol by volume. Imported by The Country Vintner, Ashland, VA. A.P. 2 576 162 27 10. Back label notes the steepness of the vineyard and iron-rich red slate soil.

Slight greenish tint to the pale gold color. Tiny bubbles on the surface when first poured (petillant or frizzante.) Some petrol. Stone fruit with pear in the lead but hints of peach also. Quite slurpable or gulpable. I had to resist drinking most of the bottle in one evening.

    Yes very easily done with this wine. Guilty as charged!

I popped the question (she said yes) then popped this open. This is outstanding. Perfect balance. Long finish. This is a medium bodied champagne. My only critique is this is not perfectly weightless. At this price point, dare I say good value!?

2009 Alvaro Palacios Priorat Camins del Priorat Grenache Blend, Grenache

My second bottle, last tasted 7 months ago. The nose is even prettier and has a dark cherry pepper intensity, not the most familiar guise of Grenache. The palate is so-so and lacks tannin and glycerin to fill the mouth but on day 2 was livelier. Grenache evolves unpredictably and I think the palate could lose its slight grape pip/black olive bitterness and be in better alignment with its fetching aromatics.
