Rave Review: VinousMedia.com on 2012 Muscat Grand Cru Goldert Clos Saint Imer Cuvée de la Chapelle – 93 Points!


“Dark gold-tinged yellow. Perfumed aromas of apple, grapefruit, powdered stone and white pepper. Lemony and minerally in the mouth, with harmonious acidity framing the rich, ripe citrus and yellow apple flavors. The finish is endless and very complex. This wine struck me as slightly atypical Muscat (at least by Burn’s Rubenesque standards) in that it’s more structured and less explosive than usual, although it is still multilayered and complex. The calcaire in the Goldert really preserves and concentrates the acidity here so that Burn can harvest late, usually in mid-October. “It’s a good time to harvest, when the leaves are almost gone,” said Burn, who then joked, “you know, it’s easier to see and pick the grapes that way.”
