Lanson Vintage Collection 1979/ Glorious, remarkably fruity nose with Coteaux du Layon reminicent botrytised tones of dried apricots, honey, orange marmalade and wool.

Schloss Gobelsburg Tradition 50 years Cuvée / Light golden colour. Pure and intense nose offering fresh stone fruit, sweet citrus, some lees derived creamy notes, fine oak, toasted hints and plenty of fine spice. The palate is warm and unctruous yet remaining fresh with crunchy and vigorous fruit, fine extract and very mild tannin contributing to structure and length, very long with great depth, purity and style.

Jeff Leve, Wine Writer (United States)  had a tasting of  7 Wines  from  7 Producers 

2020  Château Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc / With the pop of grapefruit, white peach, lemon peel, flowers, orange rind and honeysuckle in the nose, and a creamy, sweet, fresh, juicy, slightly honeyed, lush, white peach and citrus finish, you have all the ingredients needed for a luscious, white Bordeaux wine. The wine was produced from a blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris and 5% Semillon. 97  Pts

Pekka Nuikki / Editor of the Fine Wine Magazines, Pro (Finland)  had a tasting of  6 Wines  from  1 Producers 

Guigal La Turque 2018 is pure perfection in a glass. So persistent. Very dense, with flavors of smoked bacon, coffee bean, cracked pepper and licorice and it hits the palate with a massively concentrated decadence. Finishes with superb clarity, spiciness and length, leaving a smoky mineral note behind. Should age marvelously and slowly.

7d 17h ago

Izak Litwar , Wine Writer (Denmark)  had a tasting of  20 Wines  from  19 Producers 

Château Haut-Brion Blanc 2021 / 55% Semillon + 45% Semillon. Great intensity of green apple, pear and pineapple, acidity, crispiness, structure and length. Vibrant. Long lemony aftertaste. Sheer class. 98+p.

8d 20h ago

Tim Atkin MW, Wine Writer (United Kingdom)  had a tasting of  9 Wines  from  4 Producers 

2007 Nikolaihof Steiner Hund Reserve, Kremstal / This brilliant biodynamic estate is based in the Wachau on the “wrong” side of the Danube, but this wine hails from vineyards in neighbouring Kremstal. It’s an incredible Riesling: intense, focused and minerally with remarkable texture, density and concentration. Honey, white flowers and a stony undertow, with spice, creamy lees and a finish that lasts for minutes. The wine will develop for at least another decade in bottle.

Markus Del Monego MW/BWW2022-Best Germany Wine Critic of the World, Wine Writer (Germany)  had a tasting of  32 Wines  from  9 Producers 

After two years without a fair, Prowein opened its doors on Mai 15, 2022. It was wonderful to see people "live and in colour", having good discussions and feel rather well. The fair has made everything, that visitors could feel at ease. Large corridors and therefore no "traffic jams" in the alleys were creating a very pleasant atmosphere. Although I am not a big fan of tasting on fairs, as the situation is often not ideal, this edition of Prowein with the more relaxed atmosphere invited to discover some novelties.

Peter Moser, Wine Writer (Austria)  had a tasting of  14 Wines  from  1 Producers 

Emmerich Knoll Grüner Veltliner “Kreutles” Smaragd 2021, 92 points

11d 16h ago

James Suckling., Wine Writer (United States)  had a tasting of  17 Wines  from  15 Producers 

Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc 2021 / This has so much depth and power, with complex notes of flint, oyster shell, white pepper, dried mango, lemon, papaya, apricot stone and chalk. Medium-to full-bodied. Bright, yet creamy. It’s so long and concentrated. Wait and see. 90% sauvignon blanc, 5% semillon, 5% sauvignon gris. From organically grown grapes. 98-99

12d 20h ago

Christy Canterbury MW, Wine Writer (United States)  had a tasting of  11 Wines  from  11 Producers 

Château Larrivet-Haut-Brion 2013 Pessac-Léognan Blanc /
This is an ambitious bottling, made of 81% Sauvignon Blanc and 19% Sémillon crafted in 50% new French oak, 30% wood tanks and 20% concrete eggs. It is then aged 11 months in barriques that are regularly rolled to keep its lees in suspension. The result is a complex and rich nose that leads through honeycomb, citrus peel and fresh-cut flowers to a lingering finish. This is pure, zesty and highly typical of the best in its region.

Sharing. We believe that the most important property of wine can be crystallised into one concept: sharing. It is an integral part of the wine world on every level from production and tasting to travel and the moments of enjoyment. It can be said that the need to share is inherent to wine, as a product, and for the first time, there is now an organic channel - Tastingbook, a community of wine professionals around the world, to do just that – sharing the experiences and knowledge .
