Straw-yellow and brilliant, a touch of white elderflower in May, definitely mineral, red and yellow bell pepper, grapefruit; reminding of an animating tropical orchard. Some cumquats and physalis, the fragrance develops gradually layer by layer. Dry, paired with creamy, animating fruit. Juicy and smooth, again ripe pepper, multi-layered fruit structure with tropical features and stone fruit. Long finish. Less “abs and pecs” than last year´s vintage yet a real smoothy. Very promising. Takes its place in a long row of persistent Sauvignons from Rust.
Fried Camembert with fillets of pomelos. To kick off – or complete - a prominent Blaufränkisch vertical. Salad with young spinach, pignoli and fried yellow pepper, potato tart with red onions, chervil soup with croutons from anise bread. Greengages wrapped in bacon, ham with Balsamico pears. Fish dishes such as Alpine salmon with cooked celery, goat cheese tart with leek and goose berries. Avocado accompanied by all kinds of asparagus. To wait for Gordot or the main course.
Hand-picked in four runs throughout September from various vineyards – mostly with crystalline soils, into new small boxes.
