At first it taste like any other higher end natty red wine. I would have believed it was Carignan or Pais no problem. But with air things came together and it’s started to actually taste like Gamay, with sweet red berries, pink peppercorn, and woodsy earth. High acid, long finish. Good, but not great. — 9 days ago
translucent garnet, watery rim; aromatics develop slowly, wild berries, dried cranberry, orange peel, mushrooms, hints of pine needles; light to medium body, dry, medium+ acidity, light tannin, 12.6% ABV; aged 16 months in 30% new French oak; a respectable and balanced wine from the rainy and uneven 2013 vintage — 14 days ago
Very nice… vibrant lemon nose with clean steely minerality and wet white stone notes throughout the medium body to a crisp rewarding finish — a month ago
Juicy and ripe black berries, great concentration and depth of flavor, soft tannins, and enough acid to prop up the fruit. I kept reaching for more! — 5 days ago
Closed and timid at first, but soon displays a broad complexity, wonderful vinous aromas of red fall apples, raspberries and ripe peach, plenty of toast and crushed stones and a wee note of arrack and a almond nuttiness.
Dry palate, high and well balanced acidity gives the wine a proud posture, the fine beaded and round mousse is very persistent and interwoves the intense fruit profile and rings out in a long finish.
Double up day 2! More nuance and complexity one day later
