One of the best BOJO no one knows about. More notes later.

The elegance and finesse are something. Huge structure but so elegant. Amazing.

This is awesome. Incredibly vivid and well defined nose. So deep, layered and refined. Deep cherry fruit, pink peppercorn, granite and so so round and refined. Pure. Beautiful with incredible focus. Black cherry hangs at the end as well. Smells like classed growth Bordeaux or 1er Cru burg. Truly classy. The palate is complex and elegant with the structure and refinement of classed growth Bordeaux and texture of seductive Volnay or Gevrey 1er Cru. There is no carbonic here thus the more classic descriptors and burg-Bordeaux metaphors. While young this is as impressive a young MAV as I’ve ever had . A 20+ year wine. Stunning. Amazingly complex, nuanced and refined.

Lush beautiful light and mid red fruits. A touch of spice. Nice minerals, acidity and finish. Superb wine.

Nice, Crawford and Scott are the only two who like my 5 yo Beaujolais.

I have not had a ton of experience with barrel samples so I will give my impressions without giving a score. A very meaty and mineral nose that makes you think Burgundy. Lovely concentration and balance

Nose is blackberry perfume with some spice and blackberry licorice. As this opens a really intense sweet blackberry perfume.

Palate is elegantly textured. Blackberries. Some pleasant bitterness. As it opens more density. Good Deliciousness.

Bought from fass selections.

Really nice. Strong tannins. I’d say wait a few years on the one.

Bärigt, nypon med lite chark. Ok syra men saknar lite spänning.

Closed up. Maybe air would help, might be too cold. Still I enjoy what's there.
