Albert Mann Grand H 2012
Amazing purity of fruit, with dried strawberry, dark cherry and nuts. Full body, shaved chocolate and spice. The finish goes on for minutes.
René Muré Grand Cru Clos Saint Landelin 2013
Tight yet texturally beautiful, with velvety tannins and a smooth, very long finish. Lots of grainy and dusty mouthfeel.
Hugel & Fils Jubilee 2009
Aromas of plum, cedar and foie gras. Turns to mushroom and flowers. With a full to medium body, the wine starts off slowly and then develops on the palate.
Valentin Zusslin Bollenberg Harmonie 2009
A fabulous red with dried strawberry, citrus and mineral character. A full body and firm tannins yet refined and polished. Just starting to open now. 95 points
Albert Boxler S 2013
This pinot shows almonds, bark, mahogany and dried-flower character. Full body, fine tannins, bright, citrusy acidity and a mineral finish. White pepper and spice. Fabulous.
