Showing out of its mind today. Needed 25 minutes as it showed nothing initially. Now it’s huge cranberry, mineral and chalk tones. Some light raspberry as well. Big evocative complex nose. Complex, tart, concentrated and deep with great freshness and lithe tannins. So elegant, delicate and pure. Wonderful.

What you get when a champagne maker makes a red still wine. This is tart, taut, and tight as hell, even after a full day of air, but the fruit is clean and pure, the finish is both long and tannic. Will be interesting to see this evolve. @Lyle Fass says this is a cross between Volnay and Chiroubles - I see what he means, but would probably say Mercurey before Volnay.

Thigh and closed. Nose is very calm. Some dark berries (dark cherries, blackberry). Good acidity and tannins. Not much is going on; not impressed overall.

Champagne rouge is so distinctive. There’s something so ephemeral about it. Elegant. More a hint of fruit than actual fruit. Very mineral. A whisper of cherry. Nose is cherry flower. Maybe some licorice flower. What you’d imagine still champagne would be.

A bad day. For some reason this went well with fegato alla veneziana and roasted peppers and fennel.

As this opens the cherry is more pronounced. Really delicious. Nose is more intense. Almost too good for a day like this. Spice on the finish. Very very good.
