Tasting Notes

There is only a trace of herbal tea character to the spicy, cool and airy dark berry fruit, earth and floral scented nose that is showing ample secondary development (though no tertiary nuances). I like the detail and punch of the delicious middle weight flavors that possess solid if not truly special complexity, all wrapped in a lingering and reasonably well-balanced finale. This is really quite pretty and while not an especially concentrated effort, there is good flavor authority. For my taste this has just arrived at its peak drinkability and should hold here for the next 5 to 8 years, perhaps even a bit longer. Drink: Now+

Score: 90Allen Meadows,, April 2015

Cask samples. Tasted three times at different merchant tastings.
First tasting: Quite pale, as usual for Engel. Sweet and toothsome and pure pleasure, if lighter than some, with notable acidity. Should deepen.
Second tasting: Quite light and delicate and not really Grand Cru strength.
Third tasting: More intense than the Vosne-Romanée Les Brûlées, but a bit leaner and tarter than previous tastings.
