There is an elegant, sensual personality to wine. Slight brett. Inflection of acetic acid, vinegar, on finish, which expresses a broader, less terrior driven, natural wine character.

This was exquisite! Barnyard nose with robust, dried red fruit on the palate! 👌🏼

I thought this was sublime and a major overachiever considering its humble Côtes de Francs appellation. A really pure expression of dark and red fruits (plums and currants respectively) with baking spices, stone and graphite. Maybe a touch of horse blanket?? Really nice structure. Need more of this in my life. Great QPR.

Quite unusual for a Côte de Francs, but very good on lamb; has to be decantered, though

I love this! Old school Merlot. Aged in old foudres. No new oak. Light red that's quite fruity and medium bodied with good acidity. So drinkable.

Yummy. Clean, bright, deep aromas. Perfect thing for roast guinea fowl

Really interesting wine. First night was red, tart, light, brett that tastes identical to Lapierre Brett. The second night it deepened, tastes more of Cabernet. Really lovely stuff. True to the place and style, but with the lightness and grace that draws people to Burgundy. I'd love to see this again in ten years.
