This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

German rieslings and white Burg

Dinner at Guo Fu Lou.

1959 Hessische Staatsweingüter Kloster Eberbach Hochheimer Domdechaney Riesling Spätlese Cabinet Naturrein - a little petrol, polyurethane, a little white flowers, and some orange blossom in the nose.  Ripe but fairly dry on the palate.  More soft and elegant after 55 years.

2012 Willi Schaefer Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese - much bigger nose here, with plastic, white pepper notes.  Sweeter on the palate but also with nice acidity on the finish.  More complex and bigger palate.  Lovely.

2000 Coche-Dury Meursault - nose was pretty muted and disappointing - with none of that classic huge toasty nose of a Coche-Dury.  I've had a number of bottles from the same case, and this must have been just bottle variation.  Nice on the palate, though, with a long finish, good ripeness as well as crisp acidity.

Full post on dinner is here.
