Nice showing for ‘11 savagnin for first 45 minutes- pretty sharp decline after. If you are sitting on one I’d recommend drinking and drinking pretty quick upon opening. Pleasant oxidative notes. — 6 months ago
Orange red, super light, looks more like a rose or dark orange wine, cloudy.
To be honest, the notes seem like an orange wine - would have called that if blinded I think. Didn't get any red fruit character found by some CT users.
Reductive nose (olive tapenade), blood orange, quince, tea, savoury tones (tomato branch, forest floor, chicken essence).
Palate - spritzy, very natty and reductive, a touch dirty but still has fruit. Still reductive the next day, but the blood orange and tea notes were clearer. Savoury, with saline acidity and good finish. I found the tannins out of place, especially against the lightness of the wine.
Day 3 - VA has appeared, still sporting reduction interestingly, quite savoury, feels weightier.
To be frank, I don't get this wine. Maybe it needs time, but it's an odd ball of a Poulsard - nothing like Labet's or Bonard's (both of which I like). Could be bottle variation - notes seem to align with that of some users. Would love to drink this again, but with the price trend, it remains a special treat. — 6 months ago
