Some goodies on Monday

Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese 1995, Joh. Jos. Prum

Quite petrolly, but with a very pure lime flavour. The palate is nice and concentrated with quite frightening acidity. Real focus here. Lawks, this is a bit good.

Riesling Rudesheimer Magdalenenkreuz Spatlese 2002, Weingut J. Leitz

Smells slightly nutty. There is some grapefruit too. The palate is a bit closed, but there seems to be a reasonable amount of fruit and acidity. It is really rather Rheingau-y. Good, but for ageing.

Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru aux Combottes 2001, Domaine Dujac

Pure red fruit nose that seems very silky and smooth. It is very polished. The palate is very elegant and refined. Nice ripe tannins, fine balancing acidity and good fruit. Quite delicious.

Quarts de Chaume 1995, Domaine des Baumard

Damp, wet wool nose. It also smells quite earthy, mineral and botrytic. The palate is really quite rich, with heroic acidity. It is balanced, though. Nice length. Seems pretty good to me.
