Bloody good stuff

A 97 wine score set a new record during our last blind tasting. An elegant Riesling wine from The Middle Rhine Valley in Germany, which Andreas declared “bloody good stuff.” We had a wealth of great wines from Argentine, Bordeaux, Spain, Chili and more.

TASTED SELECTION OF THE WEEK TO FIND THE SCORE FOR THIS WINE. VISIT WWW.BLINDTASTED.COM



Weingut Lanius Knab – Engehöller Bernstein – 2010
Germany Mittelrhein – Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese – White
97 Points
I just adore this delicious yellow fruit. We got everything in there; mango, peach, pineapple, plenty of it, and yet we have a presence of stony minnerality, slate. A tremendously long anxious finish. Bloody good stuff.”


Bodega Norton – Privada 2012
Argentina – Mendoza – Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon – Red
94 Points
“Plenty of juicy and succulent dark fruit in this one. Long finish with a fine spiciness, a wine that will certainly gain more complexity from further cellaring, but it is drinking pretty well already right now.”


Clément – Rhum Vieux Agricole – Vielli en fûts de Chêne – 10 Years Old
France – Martinique – Spirit
94 Points
“As the alcohol is well developed into a lot of dried fruit, candy, fine caramel, cedar wood. Really long and nutty aftertaste. Certainly a rum I would prefer to drink as a digestive, not in a drink and with a good cigar.”


 

Château Quattre – Les Carrals – 2009
France – Bordeaux – Cahors – Malbec – Red
93 Points
“I still get those lovely nuances of inky, dark fruit all of those crushed dark berries. There is a fine herbal spiciness in the background, like sage, mint. Once again no evident oak. There is a good level of acidity as well so it appears quite massive, but I think it actually has a good drinkability.”


Château Cantelauze – 2012
France – Bordeaux – Pomerol – Red
92 Points
“Finely grained tannins, with some notes of coco bean, chocolate. Lushes dark fruit. Good level of freshness and acidity as well. I think this is managing to combine a certain opulence with a certain elegance.”


Bodega Campo Viejo – Gran Reserva – 2009
Spain – Rioja – Red
90 Points
“I think of plum, stewed berry, some anise seed, liquorice, so some complexity. Quite nice mouthfeel here. It is a classically dry style. More on the full bodied side, I would say.”


Mayu – Reserva – 2013
Chile – Elqui Valley D.O. – Valle De Elqui – Malbec- Red
90 Points
“A lot of lemon and lime zest, some tropical fruit notes, but in combination of those stony and mineral notes. The palate is really bone-dry. Crisp, with a refreshing mouth-watering acidity.”
