WTN: '04 Parize Givry, Muscat de Minervois, '92 Christoffel UW Aus***

by Bill Buitenhuys » Sun Oct 22, 2006 6:14 pm

2004 Parize Givry Champ Nalot (Givry) Intensely bretty, earthy, dark fruit nose with ripe fruit flavor, good acid, and lightly tannic. This bottle went down quite easily with dinner.

NV Cave des Vignerons de St. Jean de Minervois Muscat (St. Jean de Minervois) Honey, apricot and a hint of orange citrus, richly flavored but light in the mouth with just enough sweetness to satisfy a dessert craving.

1992 Joh. Jos. Christoffel Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Auslese*** (Mosel) #08 93. Mmmm. Petrol dominant nose with rich strawberries, pineapple, and cream on the palate. The softly sweetened, deeply lingering flavors transform to a zingy white pepper spicy finish. Good stuff.

Nice call on the Chrsitoffel. The '92s are underapreciated.

I've only had a couple of '92's, David, and have enjoyed them. "Underappreciated" can also mean "bargin".
