LIVE from 8pm #TWSTaste: Burgundy grapes, Alsace style [7th Nov 2019]


#41

Mrs CC: vanilla, creamy, smooth


#42

very attractive, fresh lime with some candied peel


#43

Not much like white burgundy more acidic perhaps Chablis.


#44

We couldn’t wait either! Had it with haddock.


#45

OH here, tasting, my first thought was freshly squeezed oranges.


#46

Quite sharp, lime flavours now, but also feels full in the mouth. Delicious :yum:


#47

Interesting, its smooth a little buttery, massive amounts of lemon sorbet going on . Slight fennel, touch of vanilla but again the wet stone flintiness and freshness. I think it still needs some time to balance out.


#48

gentler than most similar priced Chablis I had…


#49

Wow, interesting. Unusual - a lot going on with the balance of citrus and richer fruit but its not something that reminds me of white burgundy. Was unsure if I liked it at first but growing on me.


#50

Mixed response here. One hates it, two think it is inoffensive. All are red drinkers normally though.


#51

They say 4-7 years keeping. I’d like to try it when it’s more integrated. Loving all the various aromas, flavours, textures, but for me it’s a bit like a deconstructed wine - I want the elements to knit together more. It’s very fine, though.


#52

what was the alcohol in this? too lazy to go to the fridge now…


#53

Quite full but acidity balances it out nicely. Definitely getting more lime on the palate and a bit of clove too


#54

Definitely not something I’d compare to white Burgundy but it’s got a lovely creamy fruit character. :heart_eyes: I really quite like this…


#55

Dry, high acid, med body. Med: lime, lemon, pear, very slate. Juicy - ripe apples, apricot, orange zest. Mineral - flint, slate. Pretty long.

Or to scroll up! It’s 13%


#57

Turns out food really helps…


#58

I also thought that it was still somewhat closed based on the nose, palate confirms… I do like it though


#59

Reminds me of the English Chardonnay from the Battersea wine makers - cannot remember their name.


#60

Agreed and has some elegance, it will only get better.
