Red Burgundy de Vogue 2011 Chambolle 1er Cru Les Amoureuses - oc 12x75

1 Case 75cl £5,800£5,500
  • Deep, bright red. Subtle, pure nose offers black raspberry, black cherry, mint, menthol and a hint of citrus skin. Wonderfully silky and sweet but the black fruit flavors come off more savory than sugary owing to the wine's strong limestone character. Finishes sappy, uncompromisingly dry and very long, with firm tannins and lovely mineral and floral lift.

    Medium to full-bodied and dense, the 2000 Gewurztraminer Hengst is a broad, ample wine with loads of richness. It reveals spiced pear, mineral, and candied apple aromas as well as flavors. Opulently-textured, it should be consumed between 2003 and 2013. Olivier Humbrecht describes 2000 as "a year of excellent ripeness where the key to success was sorting out the bad rot prior to harvesting." To accomplish this, Humbrecht sent out teams to go through every parcel, dropping whatever bunches had been infected with sour rot. Domaine Zind-Humbrecht's harvest lasted 6 weeks, with one-fourth being accomplished between September 19 and October 5th, and the remaining three-fourths picked by October 31st.

    The intense scents of the 2001 Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr burst from the glass revealing red currants laced with minerals. Light to medium-bodied and oily-textured, it has loads of depth and a zesty, focused character. Minerals, lively limes, and candied lemon are found throughout its core of fruit and impressive finish.
