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.

Mark Haisma tasting

Tasting of Mark Haisma's wines at Ginsberg + Chan.

2014 Mark Haisma Saint Romain Combe Bazin - toasty nose with pain grillé, buttery, quite fragrant.  Some nice acidity on the finish.  A little flinty but somehow not lean and quite fat instead, with some apricot.  A little light on the palate.

2015 Mark Haisma Volnay Peux Bois - sweet, almost a little jammy.  Slightly leather and a little forest.

2015 Mark Haisma Gevrey-Chambertin - more fragrant, more eucalyptus.  Bigger and more intense.

2014 Mark Haisma Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Arvelets - fragrant, nice and sweet, a little leather, some forest, showing better on the nose.

2015 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Arvelets - good sweetness, more closed than the 2014.  A bit more savory, perhaps.  Possibly bigger.  More toast from new oak.

2014 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru les Chaffots - beautiful nose.  Very fragrant with sweet fruit, and a little spice.

2014 Mark Haisma Bonnes Mares - more complex, a little leaner but still nice and fragrant, a hint of pencil lead.

2015 Mark Haisma Syrah - Grenache - made with grapes from 35-year-old vines in the Ardeche.  A little savory, a little soapy and floral.
