A fairly mature Riesling, just the way i love it. The 93p is perhaps the high side, but … [Read more...] about Egon Müller Schartzhofberger Spätlese 1995 #14
The Chambolle Musigny from Dujac is less developed than similar Roumier wine, but there are signs of sweet notes in the bouquet and on the palate. Still some youthful bite, with a fine structure and length. A delicious and very good wine. (2015 - … [Read more...] about Domaine Dujac Chambolle Musigny 2002
