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


#121

Palate, Minerality giving way to yes… that ashtray again with cherry cola, some pimento,and kirsch.


#122

Not as rich as we were expecting. Might grow on us. Trying with cheese…


#123

Fresh, succulent, sour red fruits and earthy spice. Gastronomic.


#124


#125

very attractive Morello cherries (thanks @VinoVeritas) on the palate, this is great… I get the ash also but in the texture not the taste


#126

That’s really interesting — for me it was richer than I was expecting! Different expectations or big bottle variation?!?


#127

I think it is complex, but in an light and elegant way… agree with not rich, really lovely


#128

This is growing on me… lots of clove now.


#129

well, it doesn’t come across as a typical Pinot Noir, does it? Very intriguing!


#130

This is delicious. Fresh, juicy, cherries, sour raspberries, some tannin, rough silk texture.


#131

Am a bit disappointed with it. Was expecting more fruit from the nose.


#132

more langhe nebbiolo than red burgundy


#133

Its got good up front fruit and some nice sweet spice, but it’s lacking a little bit in the finish. Seems to dissipate quite quickly.


#134

What temperature is your wine??


#135

The second sip was even better than the first.

More depth than I was expecting from an Alsace PN, especially at its price point.


#136

Room not chilled.


#137

Its nothing like a red Burgundy :sweat_smile:


#138

I think this is fruity-earthy-spicy and I’m really enjoying the sour cherry and depth of the spice. For me this seems a lot more balanced and integrated than the white?


#139

Agreed — I’ve only tried a few but they’ve all been notably lighter than this.


#140

very different from Alsace (or Moselle) PN I tried before… the good thing is it is not a Burgundy imitation
