This saturday we had a little child celebration, Adriana turned 2 weeks and in good company on a weekend we pulled out three good wines.
Muhr-Niepoort Prellenkirchen 2007
First wine was from Austria with the influence of the Portuguese winemaker, Dirk Niepoort. Prellenkirchen is based on 80% Grüner Sylvaner and 20% Riesling. Taste notes and impressions are manyfold and accurately described by the Danish importer here. It is fine summer wine, with a medium body and the taste of riesling. Purchased at Atomewine.dk 99dk/bottle. 88-89P Buy
La Chablisienne 2002 Chablis 1.Cru Monte Milieu
At dinner we uncorcked what perhaps turned to be the best white wine posted on Grapejuices so far. Phillipson wine are presently selling La Chablisienne at 149dkk/bottle (when buying 12bottles) and what wonderful wine this is. The bottle itself is twice as heavy as a normal bottle, conveying the message "you-are-now-about-to-drink-some-real-hefty-stuff" - and the statement stands. There are so many nuances, which just come consecutively, one after the other. Compact bouquet of almonds, vanilla, and hinys of minerals. Taste is rich with a long finish of hazel and liquorices’. Cheers. Phillipson Wine 149DKK/bottle when buying 12bottles. 92-93P Buy
Cote Rotie Bernard Burgaud 2006
