For 2011 and 2012 “Both were crisp, refreshing and focused. The 2012 was more upfront nervy and energetic, racy and still tightly wound but packed with citrus and stone fruit flavors with notes of spice and flowers. While tight, you could sense its potential. The 2011 had already mellowed somewhat, become more obviously minerally, and expressive, showing great depth of fruit, while retaining its tension and tight definition, thus giving a more complete picture of the wine's quality and potential.
In my opinion, both of these wines will easily continue to improve for up to ten years. In fact last weekend, back in New York, we opened a 2007 Feldmarschall to celebrate a special occasion. It was elegant, minerally, persistent and layered with flavors of stone, exotic and citrus fruit, just starting to show some nuances of honeyed and savory bottle development. It was a delicious and much enjoyed wine.”
