Live from 8pm: #TWStaste white Rhône vs white Burgundy

twstaste

#21

Apricots, white pepper, donut peach and a little floral something


#22

Other half is getting cheesecake (from the wine)…sadly not from the larder.


#23

Mrs CC: a really long sniff gets me slight hint of tweed. If you’ve ever sewn with new tweed, you’ll know what I mean.


#24

I’m getting pineapple and peach on first sniff


#25

And on second sniff a creamy smell, a bit like a pina colada!


#26

Opening up a bit now. A bit more tropical man!


#27

Peach, apricot, under-ripe pineapple, orange blossom(?)


#28

Agree with buttery… also pineapple. Very pleasant but might still need to warm a little as just out of the fridge.


#29

Ours is a little on the cool side too - but I’m loving the pineapple!\

Let’s dive in for a taste! Does it live up to the nose?!


#30

Definitely!


#31

Warming up and fruit is coming through…pineapple.


#32

Don’t know if I’m just getting influenced by all this pineapple talk, but I can’t smell anything else now


#33

First taste and there’s a lot going on!


#34

Banana, still a pepper thing going on, apricot, peach and alcohol… can TOTALLY taste that alcohol


#35

Peaches & cream, green pineapple again, a saline lick. Full body — unctuous texture.

Alcohol quite noticeable.


#36

Yes, not super-sweet and juicy, is the word astringency?


#37

Mrs JD is getting pear drops and liquorice


#38

Quite richly textured and oily


#39

Yes I agree, the alcohol seems very prominent!


#40

The pepper thing is interesting. Lovely mouthfeel but the alcohol stays on the throat a bit too long.
