The last couple of days general drinking are reported below:
Riesling Serriger Schloss Saarstein Spätlese 2005, Schloss Saarstein
Much like the last couple of bottles, and very unlike the first couple, this was delicious. It has really blossomed into a peachy lovely. Great drinking on a sunny spring day.
Crozes-Hermitage 1999, Alain Graillot en magnum
Whilst this had some decent fruit, there wasn’t that much else there. It really lacked dimension and was terribly dull. I’ve had a mag of this before and it was delicious, so I don’t know what is going on with this.
Grande Millésime 1996, Gosset
This was a tightly-wound ball of intensity, flavour and class. Really ripe but with huge amounts of acid. Fabulous length and complexity. I really thought this was terribly good (although I prefer [link2post id=”1487″]Bille NF 96[/link2post]) but it needs a lot more time in the cellar.
Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume “Vignoble de Vaulorent” 2005, Domaine William Fevre
As I said when 1259″]I had a bottle of this at the end of January, this is clearly the best Chablis I have ever had. So complex and stylish, so refined and elegant, so drinkable. Truly excellent wine.
Bonnezeaux 1997, Château de Fesles
An excellent sweet wine that provided me with as much pleasure as the 1299″]bottle I had at christmas.
Meursault 2004, Henri Boillot
A well-made, perfectly drinkable wine which is very Meursault in character.
