For the first time, Tim’s Weissburgunder (aka pinot blanc) is entering into the mix. And based on what I tasted, it’s about time! This was downright delicious last week in NYC and shocked me to attention, alerting me that Tim nailed it in ’14 if even the entry level wines such as this are so crystalline.
Here is John Gilman’s review:
“As I noted last year, the 2013 Weissburgunder was made without malo and the 2014 follows in its footsteps. The wine is raised in a mix of stainless steel tanks, old fuder and fifteen year-old barriques and offers up a lovely nose of apple, peach, spring flowers and just a hint of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is medium-full, bright and bouncy, with a good core, fine length and grip and lovely focus on the bouncy finish. Good juice, with a bit more lift on the backend from its non-malo profile in the last couple of years. 2015-2025. 89.”
October ’15 arrival.
