Right from the start when you open the bottle and smell the cork, you will get the smooth oaky scents that are entangled throughout the wine.
Pour a bit of wine into a glass and swirl it around and around. Now take your nose to the glass and that rich oaky and vanilla flavour will pleasantly fill your airway.
Okay let’s get to the good part and sip, sip, hooray!
Swish, swish, bish and down the hatchet we go.
This wine will send you a slow yet full bodied flavour of cherries and spices then will develop into a man interesting deep tobacco and smoky aftertaste. This smoke flavour reminds me of the sipping Mescal from Mexico.
This wine also has lingering tannins that go well with the lingering taste. Yummmm!
I hope you can enjoy this wine as much as I have! — 2 years ago

Thank you, @tonnellerie_cadus & Maison Roche de Bellene, for these beautiful Gevrey-Chambertin barrel samples illustrating the different structural and aromatic impact of Cadus' Sensoriel series barrels! #PetraeaPlus #Cadus #burgundy #oak #pinotnoir #coolclimate #merci #wine — 3 years ago
Maybe sharing it with mom, who loves #charddy & thought this was a great bottle, caused me to enjoy it more this time or maybe it was being able to drink a bottle and not just a glass, thus tasting its evolutions that caused the higher rating? Either or, it's a v good #wine from #japan. Love it's electric lift & lack of obtrusive #oak — 5 years ago
