Nothing against Grolleau, but this was not my thing. Started off juicy and quaffable but lost its charm quick. Too much biological activity here.

Just a little too funky for me. Came out odd, clash of peppery with fruit, maybe it just needs more cellar time...? Not bad but not my thing either.

Blueberries, blackberry compote, green peppercorns, pottery soil, allspice, iron. Rounded acid/minimal tannin presence, medium bodied, heavy juicy-silky texture, fruity-peppery-earthy finish. Aromatic, mineral driven, Grenache-like.
