Becker & The Bee

Monday evening was warm, soft breeze evening..but the bee wouldn't stay still long enough...hopping about like a ...well....like a bee!
White after red......so with the Sankt Paul still in my memory.. a white from the same Estate...





Friedrich Becker Chardonnay 2005
Pfalz, Germany
Small pearls in the glass...and the nose shows only
reserved citrus..come on...try harder Miss Chard...ahhh..now we have a trace of oak..or should I say barrique..just enough to entice....this is a teaser....but finally she shows her 'best' side...the taste...creamy, vanilla...but no 'oak slapper' here...elegant..Becker knows how to use his barrels...as it aired and opened..there was a lovely spicy back palate with a soft lingering finish.
Points 17.5
