Special half bottle for Minnies Birthday! Layer upon layer of richness with beautiful balance. #trockenbeerenauslese #steinberger #riesling #rheingau #cellartreasures #tba #wine

My big boy enjoying the park earlier this morning.

1971 Rauenthaler Rothenberg #beerenauslese Gold Kap half bottle, unctuous mouth coating goodness, superb concentration, molasses, toffee, orange citrus but the most amazing factor was how the wine gained elegance and complex floral characters over the space of 3hrs. It actually lost weight as it opened. A backward but very enjoyable experience. #iloveriesling #wine #riesling #germanriesling #rarewinedinners #cellartreasures #Rheingau

When you start the night on a 46, where do you go to finish it? how about a 76 #Rheingau #beerenauslese - even better, this bottle is singing! The tune is apricots, glace pineapple, honey, spice & a tiny bit of kero. This light weight for a 76 Rheingau but the elegance is impressive, as is the balance - wish you were here. Just delicious! #wine #riesling #1976 #rarewinedinners #germanwine

1946 Bidaut-Royer "Les Vaucrains" At first thin but is gaining weight and sweetness as it opens in the decanter. On the palate the fruit is fading but dusty dried cherry, red currant, earth and a dash of soy and brine are still present, letting you know it's origins. The nose is floral with briar and sweet red jubes. There is also a touch of antique polished furniture. It is attractive, performing well considering it's vintage & age. The color is terracotta with a pink reddish core. #wine #rarewinedinners #redburgundy #burgundy #cellartreasures #nuitstgeorges #1946

1961 #Volnay #burgundy the disappointment of a perfect condition bottle corked! A great wine underneath but that wet cardboard is just too much of a distraction.

According to Alan who is nearly 5, this 76 #beerenauslese, in order, smells of: orange, cinnamon, mango, coconut and peaches. All i would add is the apricot and a touch of toffee. #delicious #riesling
