  • A Night of Nuits (Nicolas's): Tasted blind.
    Nice rich nose, with some integrated wood, and some lemon, plus a bit of animal character ( slight reduction?) - or something similar that I could not exactly pinpoint.
    Quite rich and broad, slightly troubled golden color, and I could detect some not well integrated alcohol. Very well made, and quality material, but somehow does not speak to me.
    K. detected an aged Burgundy, I thought it was much younger from a ripe vintage (like 2009).

  • Pearly, icy yellow colour in the glass. Initially a stoney, minerally, wet iron like impression on the nose. With air and added temperature the nose turned completely to reveal hints of tropical fruits with a strong pine-apple element. Clean and pure mouthfeel with good structure and intensity, and a nice oily flow. Not as sweet, and nutty, as could be expected. To begin with I noted this wine as a 92 pointer, but over the course of a few hours, the aftertaste took a bizarre twist, and became beer-like. Seriously, this had an aftertaste of draft-beer more than chardonnay. This was a bit of a turn off to me, so I guess the overall grade is a bit tough.

  • Tasted at McCarthy & Schiering. On the nose this boasts of toasty filbert and wood-spice. On the palate this is puckering, very citric, with an almost tropical edge and a hint of caramel. Very lush palate. A long finish showing a lot of acid, very nice.
