The tradition of tasting rare wines with sommelier friends at Kloster Eberbach also continued this year. Dieter Greiner, the general manager of the winery built the tasting around the vintages 1934 and 1964. He also added some more recent wines to complement the tasting. Cellar Master Kathrin Puff showed her "Wild Ferment" wines, which represent a new dimension of terroir expression. This tasting, held in the Bismarck-room of the cloister was just another stunning experience in the world of fine and rare wines.

Ricasoli Chianti Classico Roncicone Gran Selezione 2020 / 97p Multifaceted and decidedly fascinating in its sensorial profile, it shows notes of plums, mixed red flowers, pink grapefruit, chopped cedar, guarana, green tea leaves and vetiver. Medium body, soft tannins of excellent workmanship and a linear and essential finish that immediately involves with gracefulness and finesse, precision of execution and character. Splendid for its finesse, composure and nobility in the gentle harmonious sip. Drink now or grow old.

Jeremy Oliver / BWW2024 Finalist, Wine Writer (Australia)  had a tasting of  20 Wines  from  10 Producers 

Henchke Hill of Grace 2015 /"Effortlessly long, smooth and supple, this polished and uber-restrained shiraz unfolds a musky, peppery and faintly meaty bouquet of mulberries, cassis, dark plums, cedar/vanilla oak and paprika backed by suggestions of cola and sweet floral notes. Flaunting its rare restraint and finesse, it reveals layers of pristine translucently clear dark red, blue and black berry flavours supported by a refined, ultra-fine spine of loose-knit tannins and knit with creamy, cedary, cigarboxy oak, building in weight and lasting forever. A very different, distinctive Hill of Grace of exceptional quality and charm."

Jeff Leve / BWW2024 Finalist, Wine Writer (United States)  had a tasting of  18 Wines  from  11 Producers 

The Best 40 wines tasted in 2023 Part II, exclusively for readers of Tasting Book. It has been quite a year, with far more ups than downs, especially when it comes to wine. I am lucky as well as blessed to be able to taste older, mature wines, as well as young wines and barrel samples, all of which allows me a fun look at a myriad of different wines at all ages and stages of maturity.

By ratings, these are a look at the 40 best wines tasted, so far. I have two more special nights coming up, but as we already closing in on the second week of December, this is a good snapshot of the best wines from 2023.  I hope you have at least half as much read it, as I did tasting them.

Jeannie Cho Lee MW/ BWW2024 Finalist, Wine Writer (South Korea)  had a tasting of  21 Wines  from  13 Producers 

Château Lafleur 1952 - 100 points / A gorgeous wine with layers of tobacco, leather, dried plums and hint of cacao. The palate is seductively silky with an explosion of additional spicy and dried berry flavours. Wonderful lingering finish. This wine is utter perfection.

Pekka Nuikki / Editor of the Fine Wine Magazines and Champagne Magazine, Wine Writer (Finland)  had a tasting of  26 Wines  from  3 Producers 

Château Latour tasting from 1928-1990 /  Château Latour 1945 presents a deep, garnet hue with subtle hints of brick-orange at the edges, indicating its maturity and long aging.The bouquet is incredibly complex and captivating, offering a symphony of aromas that evolve with each swirl of the glass. Initial notes of ripe black fruits such as blackcurrants and plums mingle with nuances of cedar, leather, and tobacco. As the wine opens up, delicate hints of dried herbs, truffles, and earthy undertones emerge, adding layers of intrigue to the olfactory experience.

 On the palate, Chateau Latour 1945 showcases its remarkable depth and structure. The velvety texture coats the palate with flavors of rich dark fruits, accented by touches of spice and a subtle minerality that speaks to its terroir. The tannins, though still present, have softened over time, lending a smooth and seamless mouthfeel. There is a beautiful balance between fruit intensity, acidity, and tannic grip, indicative of the wine's impeccable aging potential.

The finish is long and lingering, leaving an impression of elegance and sophistication. Subtle echoes of dark chocolate and espresso linger on the palate, accompanied by a touch of graphite minerality that adds to the wine's complexity.

Axel Probst/BWW2024 Finalist, Wine Writer (Germany)  had a tasting of  8 Wines  from  3 Producers 

QUINTA DO NOVAL VINTAGE PORT NACIONAL 1963 – This is the Vintage Port which most people would like to take to their lonely island. High-scores everywhere and so much life ahead that it almost frightens you: The colour is easily 10-20 years younger of what you would expect. Deep, dark-red colour with lots of reflections. Perfectly balanced bouquet with finesse and intensity. Long and multi-layered aftertaste. Tasted last year at the Quinta. Port-Heaven! 100

Christer Byklum/ BWW2024 Finalist, Wine Writer (Norway)  had a tasting of  11 Wines  from  11 Producers 

Tasting of vintages that end with the number 3 / Part I / Château Lafite 1983. Ruby, thin brick rim. Scented, lovely depth, bright, nuanced, floral, layered, beautiful nose, ripe yet very low tuned in a way, refined and discreet. 
Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, anise, spices, blackberries, some spices, detailed and layered, balanced, such finesse, long finish. Superb!

Richard Hemming MW / BWW2024 Finalist, Wine Writer (United Kingdom)  had a tasting of  20 Wines  from  17 Producers 

DRC Romanée-Conti 2015 / Floral aromas as well as irresistible red bramble fruit and a touch of leafy stem aroma too. Persistent and balanced in a way that is quite remarkable, keeping the tannin and acid interlinked right through to the very last echo of flavour. Incredible persistence that keeps delivering flavour. A triumph, combining the excellence of producer, vintage and site in a way that truly deserves the legendary label.  20 points

Neal Martin / BWW2024 Finalist, Wine Writer (United Kingdom)  had a tasting of  20 Wines  from  17 Producers 

The Domaine Comte de Vogüé Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2021, their only vineyard on the north side of Chambolle, includes around 50% whole bunches this year. The stems are discretely enmeshed, present, but allow the fruit and terroir to speak. I admire the freshness and joie-de-vivre here. The palate is medium-bodied with finely chiselled tannins, vivid black cherry fruit laced with orange zest/blood orange towards its energetic finish. Bon vin.
