- 1997 Charles Joguet Chinon Clos du Chêne Vert - France, Loire Valley, Touraine, Chinon (4/14/2006)
Juicy shit. This rocks.
- 2001 Freiherr Heyl zu Herrnsheim Rotschiefer Riesling Spätlese Trocken - Germany, Rheinhessen, Nierstein (4/14/2006)
Slightly gold. The openly expressive nose is pungent, young, sweet, perhaps slightly botrytised and earthy rather than mineral. The palate is fully dry, assertive, pungent, very mineral and very earthy. I usually find fully dry Spätleses to be cumbersome and too alcoholic but this carries its 12% very well. This, though unmistakeably German, has Alsatian austerity and strength. Very good and very long but too powerful to be elegant.
