Syrupy with a Campari like finish — 4 years ago
Beautiful light brick color. Light mouth feel with a bitter edge like Campari or vermouth. Grown east of burgundy on the border of Switzerland (where comte cheese is from!). Trousseau means dowry 😍 Caroline says every trousseau she’s had is interesting so it’s always worth trying. Some may be barnyard’y the night you open them but they really open up the next day. — 4 years ago
Loved this in a Negroni instead of Campari. Richer, less bitter. Delish!! — a year ago
Drank beautifully. Red currant and a little Campari (although that could be from earlier in the night) with good mineral support. — 3 years ago
Stadig genial. Reduktiv neglelaksfjerner. Hindbær-amok. Campari-krydret. 👌 — 4 years ago
Even better on day 2! Let this breathe! Forest floor/tertiary notes, pine, cedar, cocoa, plum, sweet berries, I like the Campari note that someone noted... that sort of medicinal quality!
On the palate, stemmy, upfront tannins, smooths out into an etheral expression of tart forest berries, plums, some oak, coffee bean, cocoa nib, pine/rosemary, quite savoury.
This almost reminds me of something out of Italy!
Overall, a beautiful Loire red with lots to offer. Love the savoury characteristics! Cheers! — 2 years ago
Not as bitter as Campari, not as sweet as Aperol. It makes an excellent spritz. — a year ago
