2005 Müller-Catoir, Breumel In Den Mauern

(Decanted two hours the day before)

Totally different wine, than G-Max. Fennel and spices, but combined with an element of sweetness which I liked. The taste is very nice - combining the spices with some sweetness and a bold finish. However as the wine gained some warmth in the glass it became a bit controversial across the table. The perfumes transforms it’s spiciness to a bizarre hair shampoo note, which took a lot balance away. Overall an interesting wine, but not a crowd pleaser. I will let my remaining bottles rest for some time and hope for it to become more balanced.
