Rave Review: VinousMedia.com on 2011 Ernest Burn Sylvaner – 91 Points!


WINERY PROFILE | Domaine Ernest Burn / Clos St Imer

“Bright medium-deep straw. Peach and apricot nectar aromas as with the 2010 but less explosive and complex than that wine due to a higher percentage of passerillage and much less noble rot in 2011. Moderately sweet, tactile flavors of ripe apricot, lemon curd and aromatic herbs are fresh, clean and very long. A truly remarkable sylvaner from grapes picked in mid-October, but as it had the misfortune of following the superlative 2010 sylvaner, it suffered a little in comparison.”
