Top Notes For
Daniel Maquin

The first nose is barnyard funk and rotten eggs all over the place. Ewww. Then comes green pepper, then comes pepper and other spices, then black currant and red berries. Much more my stuff. The palate is rather demanding. A strong acid backbone, a salty layer, a nice black currant / cherry persistant note, some grip, some tannins too. Long finish with salt, meat juice and red and black fruits on an instable balance. Rather very good and surprising. This is very good stuff considering the price tag (around 12€)
