(WT060921-02) 19 VERNACCIA DI SAN GIMIGNANO, TOSCOLO  $16.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 12.5%; cold macerated and fermented; Franco Bernabei, super-star winemaker; Neil Empson selection. Not as fruit/flower scented s the Calcinaie. A distinctive lime like undertow that puts vernaccia in a new focus./ The palate is more evocative, echoing citrus and adding flowers and minerals. Its own take on vernaccia. Mentally stimulating. 16.3.

(WT060921-04) 18 KAMPTAL RIESLING TROCKEN, SCHLOSS GOBELSBURG  $21.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (AUSTRIA) 12.5%; mainly from Gaisberg & Heiligenstein; vines under 15 years old; Terry Theise selection. Racy, vigorous. A walnut husk suggestion I love in rieslings, found particularly in Erdeners. Relates to terpene I suppose. This runs deep, peppery./ Flavor set echoes aromatics. Everything really hangs together well at this stage of development. No call to cellar further. Dry, mealtime riesling, for sure. Very popular with the group. 16.8.

(WT060921-05) 20 COTEAUX DU GIENNOIS ROSE, CLEMENT & FLORIAN BERTHIER  $14.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ROSE) 12.5%; pinot noir and gamay from a Loire tributary in the Region de Sauvignon; limestone, marl, and flint soils; 30-35 yr old vines. Peter Weygandt selection. Unique. Pink fruit. Strawberry and leaf. Something nettly too. Modest sulphur at a tolerable level, and no fermentation residuals./ More pink fruit peels extracts. Great, racy acidity. Would like to give this a few more weeks to fill out, to round out. Nonetheless, it threw off its sulphur after a couple hours' aeration and was a hit with many attendees. 16.5+.

(WT060921-06) 18 SAVOIE MONDEUSE, DOMAINE EUGENE CARREL  $15.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN) 12.5%; 6 generation family estate; clay-limestone soil, which suits mondeuse noire, planted mainly in Savoie. Full color, developing a light patina of maturation./ Deep and satisfying purple-fruit mondeuse nose. Hallmark as well as ample. You could easily pay more for this quality of mondeuse experience./ Full, rich, round, balanced. Fine flavor range that includes a hint of plum pit. Spot on, and at a proper degree of maturity for full enjoyment. 16.8.

(WT060921-07) 19 HANZELL SEBELLA SONOMA COAST PINOT NOIR  $27.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (U.S. WEST COAST) 13.8%; Sonoma Valley Burgundy-grape specialist since the 1950s; Sebella, once the estate's second wine, now incorporates fruit from neighboring growers as well; aged 9 months in French oak barrels, 10% new. That's a proper medium dark pinot color./ Oh, wow. That's special. Adheres to the tradition of early Calif pinot noirs: red fruited instead of black, subtly spicy-oaky instead of frankly woody, dry instead of sweet, elusive instead of obvious./ Oh, yes. The dryness. The acidity. The unique flavor set that's now near extinct. Bargain priced beside the Grand Vin. 17.6+.

(WT060921-08) 18 CHIANTI CLASSICO VILLA NOZZOLE, TENUTA DI NOZZOLE  $19.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 14%; from Greve in the north, whence come elegant Classicos; aged 10 months in French oak barrels. It does indeed exhibit the charm of a Greve classico. As well as the cherry fruited sangiovese generosity of 2018. Spot on./ Yes, medium to full bodied, full flavored, well balanced by sangiovese's innate fruit acidity. Picture perfect for present service. 16.7.

(WT060921-09) 17 LANGHE NEBBIOLO CHIARA BOSCHIS, AZ. AGR. E. PIRA  $37.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 14%; 1st woman winemaker in the Langhe; from 15 yr old vines in cru Ravera; aged 14 months in second-year French oak barrels. The long barrel sojourn as well as the relatively rapid maturity of 2017 both show in this really quite advanced nose./ Yes, bouquet forming already. Some tannin to resolve yet. It's an ambitious Alba nebbiolo. But, frankly, I prefer these with more varietal than maturation emphasis. Think of the money I'll save. 16.4+.

(WT060921-10) 15 VACQUEYRAS VIEILLES VIGNES, DOMAINE LE COUROULU  $27.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes

Old vines and syrah lend a full color./ 15 ripe, old vines deep and concentrated. Putting up some resistance at this stage./ The palate is flavorful, deep, and variegated (aka complex). The tannin is well managed. This has fine, mid term cellar potential. At present, it's in a bit of an aromatic trough. No problem. 17.2+.

(WT060921-11) 18 RUDESHEIMER KLOSTERLAY RIESLING KABINETT, WEINGUT LEITZ  $24.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (GERMANY) 9.5%; gently rolling site on the Rudesheimer Berg beneath the Benedictine abbey (kloster) on slate (lay); Leitz always makes a kabinett from here. Aloof, dry, and stony Rudesheimer Berg nose. Some sulphur under screwcap yet, and also some terpene of maturity. Yet the site speaks./ Leitz sweet. On the high side of kabinett I surmise. Leitz come hither. Adequate acidity, if coated. Ready to apply to south and east Asian food options. 16.5.

(WT060921-12) 18 OPPENHEIMER SACKTRAGER RIESLING SPATLESE, WEINGUT DR. HEYDEN  $15.99
06/09/21 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (GERMANY) 8.5%; 2nd generation Frank Heyden, known to group members who attended the Vinicombe tasting tours of yore, runs the estate with brother Harry; best vineyard of Oppenheim, on the Rheinfront near Nierstein; Derek Vinnicombe selection. There's sulphur under screwcap here too, but neither does it sting too sharply. The roundness and depth of a Rheinfront site./ Richness of an auslese. Heyden raciness. Flavor persistence. Faint hint of bottle bouquet. Nails site, maker, and vintage. Very popular with the group. 16.6+.
