Some unpublished wines from Jan 2013

Brøttum 05.01. 13

1989 Château Laville Haut-Brion:
Fill one cm below excellent cork. Pale golden. Citrus, touch of orange marmalade, some honey and tropical fruits, touch of nuts that blows off after fifteen minutes. Scented, complex and layered. Fresh and lively acidity, mouthwatering as few, extreme minerality and waves upon waves, that with air gets much more into a whole, that is extremelly long. Needed an hour to be complete. One of the longest white wines I've ever tried. 100

2001 Reichsrat von Buhl Kirchenstück Forst Riesling Spätlese Trocken:
Pale lemon yellow. Somewhat floral over subdued citrus, apples and elegant flinty touch. Fresh and lively acidity, balanced for a Spätlese Trocken, elegant body long finish. 93

1953 Château Latour:Very top shoulder fill. Garnet with brick rim. Mature nose, prunes, figs, leather, scented, adding by the minute. Fresh acidity, tannins polished away, very mature and a bit dusty far back. Cedar, a bit beyond fully mature, but this bottle not that far. Still lots of dried fruits. Subtle evolution and evolvment in the glass, the dust blows away after about thirty minutes, and just layers of pure, but dried fruit. Superb wine to meditate by the fireplace, a bit to nuanced for food, mellow and round, long. Pure enjoyment over almost three hours. 94-95

2000 Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild:
(2nd Ch. Mouton Rothschild) Deep ruby, garnet rim. Surprisingly youthful, almost barrel sample. Wakes up a bit after two hours in decanter, but still one of the youngest 2000's I've tasted in a long time. Some herbs, bell peppers, cassis, scented and youthful. Fresh acidity, almost edgy tannins, some cedar shows up, still a bit tight. Two and a half hour, it starts to open and feels more rounded. Good length and far too young. 90

2001 Joseph Drouhin Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche:
Pale golden. Rich nose, butter, nuts, minerals, evolved since last bottle about six months back. Almost smoky and bacon fat with a touch of citrus behind. Freshish acidity, rich palate, fuller than last bottle, a bit short. 91

2005 Georg Breuer Nonnenberg Riesling Auslese:
Golden. Honey, apricots, rich and deep nose. Heavy Riesling. Fresh acidity, lively and playful and quite a contrast to the rich body. Honey and almost waxy palate, good length. 92

2004 Château d'Yquem:
Golden. Honey, apricots, vanilla, pineapples and tropical fruits. Needed a few minutes to open. Fresh and lively acidity, somewhat richer and fuller than last bottle and a bit more vanilla, but the same pure fruit. Long. 94
