Sometimes a wine acts differently than the bottle it's placed in. Looking through recent notes, I found two such examples wherein I wrote the wine reminded me of another, in this case riesling/Chablis.
Schloss Gobelsburg, Riesling, Heiligenstein, 2006
Bright yellow gold. Petrol notes beginning to appear on the nose. There's a limestone-like minerality here, fizzling like liquid acid dropped on stones from a vial. Rounded body with good (but not biting) acidity, greengage plum, sunflower nut meat, and granny smith appleskin. A little heady on the finish. Finishes almost like a Chablis. 13.5%
Patrick Piuze, Chablis, 'Vaucoupin', 2008
Feels like a (very) dry German riesling of old. Sharp and thin, lacking charm or balance or complexity. Despite the overly strong acidity, there is a slight hint of oxidative flavor as well. If this is the Piuze style, count me out as they are not cheap. 12.5%
