Pairs


The Noah's Arc theory....two by two...and the Corovin came into play.

Seeger Heidelberger Herrenberg Blauer Spätburgunder 'R' 2007
Baden, Germany

Deeper colour...orange rimmed...more intensity on the nose...dark smoke...lively acidity...gentle burnt fruit...prickly strawberries...soft explosion at finish...and long.
Points 17.5

Seeger Heidelberger Herrenberg Blauer Spätburgunder 'R' 2008
Baden, Germany

In comparison...it suffered slightly...a nose of fresh polish...acidity more dominant...earthy tones...tried alone a couple of days later...it appeared more concentrated. It is down to vintage styles which one you prefer...but the 2007 is a step above.

Points 17

The Corovin has...up to now...only been used for red wines...as whites hold well ( and improve ) with a few days in the fridge.

Markus Molitor Saarburger Rausch Riesling ** 2012
Mosel, Germany

Pale yellow/ green colour...quite full...touch of sweetness...but hold-back minerals...this is more 'drinkable' or should I say 'gulpable' with that instant Mosel style.
Points 16.5


Boxler Riesling Sommerberg E Grand Cru 2012
Alsace, France
E stands for Egbert which is the upper part of this Grand Cru vineyard.
Livelier...touch more 'serious' than the Molitor...and more to my style. Flinty nose...flavour constantly of interest...citrus fruits...complex mineral notes.
Points 17.25




And so to the last pair...

Bernard Michelot Meursault 2007
Burgunday , France

Rich and lemony...in style...just in the middle ( I tend to the more austere)...

a fine balance of butter and 'old style'...and improved with a touch warmth in the glass
Points 16.75

Francois Jobard Meursault Porusots Premier Cru 2008
Burgundy, France

Oh yes...super fruit...nose almost exotic...rich and racy...complex...

the aroma hovers waiting for you to return...creamy notes.
Meursault...so hard to describe...so easy to enjoy.
Points 17.5
