För att låna ytterligare en idé från WB.

Vi har kommit halvvägs in på året och vore kul att höra vilka som har varit era bästa vinupplevelser 2014.

Min top tre:

2004 Château L'Evangile (96p)
2004 Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Secret des Sabon (95)
1993 Nikolaihof Grüner Veltliner Vinothek (95)

Jag har inte hunnit dricka många viner i år. Två bra är:
  • Jamsheed Garden Gully Syrah 2011
  • Château Fontenil 2008
Jag får försöka bättra mig under resten av året...

Har ingen aning på rak arm. Ett jag vet är 2010 Reyneke Reserve (95p), men det är mycket vin som silats mellan tänderna i år. Minns även detta som riktigt minnesvärt: 2008 Collet de Bovis Rouge (94p). Jag borde inte glömma 1976 Couly-Dutheil Chinon Baronnie Madeleine heller, men betygmässigt kanske den inte hör hemma (den tog mig dock med storm där och då). Satte för övrigt inget betyg vid det tillfället, vilket gör det uppenbart varför det är bra med poäng. Man glömmer ju så fort. Denna var inte dum heller: 2008 Château Montrose (95p)

Ytterligare lite utropstecken utan betygsättning:

  • 2007 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape
  • 1992 Schloss Johannisberger Rotlack Riesling Halbtrocken
  • 2004 Allegrini La Poja Veronese IGT

Som ni förstår är det svårt för mig att plocka ut favoriter. :)

Ja där var det lite godsaker jag hade glömt av! :)

2007 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape gillade jag skarpt, och blev förvånad över hur elegant och balanserat det var i en annars så uppumpad årgång.

2008 Château Montrose var äve den givetvis fantastisk, men rejält knuten. Fick chans att prova årgång 2003 för några veckor sen och där fick man samma laserintensitet fast även en rejäl dos av komplexitet.

Är så bortskämd med kvaliteten på Rieslingviner att dom nästan blir bortglömda.

Ingen inbördes ordning. Inte helt ovanligt, så är valen till viss del baserade på sällskap och upplevelsen.
  • 2001 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904
  • 2010 William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos
  • 2009 Renato Ratti Marcenasco Barolo
  • 2002 Sassicaia

Dessa är de bästa jag har druckit:
1998 Pol Roger Champagne Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill Brut
2002 Moët & Chandon Champagne Cuvée Dom Pérignon (Dessa flaskor bör man hålla sig borta från)
1996 Henriot Champagne Cuvée des Enchanteleurs Brut
2008 Realm Cellars The Bard

Sedan måste jag väl också nämna, eftersom jag inte riktigt kan bestämma om de skall vara med på listan ovan eller ej. Förbannat gott var det i alla fall.

2000 Taittinger Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne
2002 Union Champagne de Saint Gall Champagne Cuvée Orpale Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs

Kul viner! Drack Rioja Alta G R 904 2001 tidigare i år och var mäkta imponerad.

Jag kan inte säga att jag har utforskat Rioja grundligt(eller några andra områden för den delen), men de viner därifrån jag har druckit tidigare har inte direkt imponerat. Men denna var väldigt trevlig, med spännande och komplexa mogna smaker. Det passade dessutom alldeles utmärkt till grillad entrecote med ben.

2011 Escombro Jumilla
Alicante Bouschet
2014-03-03 - I LIKE THIS WINE: 100 points
This wine will attract a fanatical following and is my first 100p here on CT. Have thought about this wine for three days now and feel comfortable with the score.

Black color.
Rich, splendid, elegant and multi-disciplinary aromas including various herbs and both dark and red berries. Still very young and for making my point clear: no anise, no coffee and no roasted aromas.
In the mouth this is more rich than an old-fashioned Aussie Shiraz, but not from extraction, no, this tastes like the natural concentration of the grapes. (In my imagination, the grapes used for this wine are so small, they are picked with tweezers) Escombro is long, multifaceted and a chamelion that both charmed and blew our socks off. Good acids and a fabulous tannic structure hiding behind the megafruit. More balanced than Justitia's scales.

Made by what is described as a rather peculiar Swede, Erik Rosdahl. Apparently tall, wild-looking, prefers flip-flops even in the winter and lives in a ruin ("Escombro" in Spanish.)
Is sold in some 3-star restaurants and in Bar Brutal (Barcelona) where it was recommended to me by the owner. Who later was coaxed by my daughter to let me buy the restaurant's last bottle...
I would guess it's the one great wine that RP didn't have before complaining about natural wines...
There is no other text of any kind on the label.
At Bar Brutal they said it's made of Grenache, but on the only web reference I can find, it says old vine Alicante Bouchet. So, I don't know. 16%, so not for everyone.

If I had as many btls as I wanted, I'd drink one every week for maybe 30 years. Now I only have one and will enjoy it on my pre-birthday party in april.

CT offline in Tokyo (1 star L'Effervescence): I find no flaws with this wine, but don't feel experienced enough (non-comfortable) with Mosel Rieslings to award it 100 points. The obvious feeling is of lying down in a beautiful meadow in the summer... VOTN among four with pedigree.

Golden.
Rich, splendid, mature Riesling character with a perfect whiff of petrochemistry. Honeyed (suggesting Botrytis) with aromatic flowers (jasmine, honey suckle, Philadelphus) and summer fruit. Broad, superbly balanced acids in a fabulously concentrated, intense entry, mid-palate and somersaulting finish. Almost no sweetness in the wine anymore. Beautiful mouthfeel and transparency and oozing of mineral character. Also has an oily component together with the petroleum.
Geee, this is to live for! Wish I had more for immense pleasure now and for at least 10 more years.--

Brownbag in Göteborg by Finewines.se (Göteborgs Vinkällare): WOTN (I seem to remember that all ppl agreed.)
This Riesling clearly speaks German.
In its perfect stride, where it will remain and slowly fade away over many years.
The perfect German Riesling nose with superbly balanced petrochem and mature Botrytis notes of distinction. The palate is amazingly elegant and well built with the sweetness reduced from age and a beautiful, tranquil, transparent structure allowing for the stony minerality to take center stage.
A lovely, lovely wine.

Midsummer Night's Celebration (Pagan Way) (1 star L'Effervescence (Tokyo)): My WOTN.
Extremely rich, dense, aromatic Shiraz nose in a perfect place. It's rare I get stuck with my nose in a red wine, but this nose is utterly amazing!
In the mouth, it has excellent balance even if there is a hefty full bodied Gospel singer embodied in this wine. Dramatic, clear expression of wet stones and all the anise-seeds, fennel, rusty iron and industrial rubber that you can ever dream of.
Has many more years of great life ahead of it. Really wish I had some...

2014-04-26 - I LIKE THIS WINE: 97 points
Brownbag in Göteborg by Finewines.se (Göteborgs Vinkällare): Dark, mature red color.
The nose took a while for me to dissect. With the great noses around the table I soon saw the light. Dark, mellow and earthy notes that grew well. Speaks clearly of age with a fabulous aromatic palette of butter and BBQ sauce with some 'liquid smoke'.
In the mouth it is becomingly oxidized from its age, has integrated its barrel time well and still both acidic and tannic bite. Dark cherries jam, a hint of dill and a fine pice of butter on top. Full bodied wine and all grapes snuggly and seamlessly integrated.

Our blinded discussions started in Spain, travelled the World, only to return to Spain. We then scratched Rioja and with small assistance from M.E. finally scratched also Priorat and landed with Vega Sicilia. Almost correct :)
A fabulous, fabulous wine!
Owners with good btls can keep their treasures for many more years, however, it is fully mature now.

World Cup Football BBQ wine dinner (Zorg's place, Umeå, Sweden): WOTN.
Fantastic performance tonight!
Mjuffingly fantastic! Previous TN stands, just turn up the volume a bit! Please...
If you have a higher degree of self discipline, than, please, keep it for at least 5 years. Longer is better.

2014-06-11 - I LIKE THIS WINE: 97 points
One of the best Sherries or possibly: THE best Sherry in my Life (so far). Had from 1/2 btl after 24 hrs of slow-ox in wine fridge. Multi-faceted, multi-layered and long, intrinsic, pure and should go well with many foods.

Golden brown, with focus on brown.
First I was struck by the pure Amaretto tone. Then the nose of varnish (really dried specimen) hit, together with EtOH-drenched almond icing (mandelmassa), milk chocolate, arrak (giving for the Swedish palate: "punschpraliner" and "myrstack") The nose is just immensely monsterous with the smooooooth character abundant.
If the nose is great, the mouth is imperial... Long, long, looooong, looooooooooong, looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong!
Great acids that add the aspect of youthful vitality to its great things. Starts off with a smooth Amaretto tone and ends with a very long grilled bread aroma that verges on being that of burnt hair. Incredibly long, fantastic experience.

Will return w/Mats asap for the next practice of July.
