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


#81

It’s got everything there to become great. Not quite altogether yet but showing real promise.

Now I’d give it a 7 but would love to try it in a couple of years. Maybe put a case in reserves @laura? :grin::grin:


#82

I think it’s really nice to drink but it’s not massively complex so I’m going with a 7!


#83

7 and 7 from us


#84

Good as an aperitif now or with a seafood starter perhaps? Perhaps more like a Burgundy in a few years time, but it is quite acidic compared, say, to the Talmard Macon-Villages.


#85

6 for me — young still, but balanced, decent length & intensity. Would be happy to drink again (maybe in a few years though?)


#86

very short, too… for now


#87

Not a hit. 4 and 5 from us.


#88

OH would give it a good 7. It’s going down very well with slices of smoked duck and Cumberland sauce so I’d probably agree


#89

We like this - 7 from both of us


#90

Let’s pour the red, shall we? :smile: Have a swirl and sniff…


#91

6.5 from me, but it is enjoyable in a Un-Chardonnay sort of way…


#92

Just getting it out of the fridge! (20 mins in, as per!)


#93

Did anyone decant it?


#94

Ooh - I’m swirling and sniffing tinned cherry pie filling. Wonderful! And then it goes all fresh cherries. and loganberries.


#95

Raspberry. Lovely nose.


#96

I’m thinking cherry and cinnamon


#97

Definitely getting both cherry and raspberry


#98

not a decant, but poured an hour ago… I love the smell of sour cherries in a wine and this one has plenty


#99

Lovely burgundy colour when held up to the light of the laptop !

Strawberry, redcurrant and spice on the nose at first. A head cold isn’t helping, mind.


#100

Ooh, it’s tart, isn’t it?!
