So closed that you'd need power tools to open it. Despite a hard decant, the nose was just all sulphury reduction and smoke. Very tannin-forward on the palate - astringent almost, with just hints of red fruits lurking in the background. Combined with high acidity, this was far from a joy to drink. From the previous bottle opened, it looks like an overnight slow-ox (12h) would be required to make this drinkable, and even then reduction was still present.

Lots to love about the 2019 Migan once you get past the highly reductive aromas and unripe tannins. With air, the reductive notes do meld into the peppery, floral, red-cherry bouquet, appearing as a smoky, Chinese herb-spice mix note. Saline and tart on the palate, with cherries, cranberries, and spiced meat, as well as a hint of bitterness that gives the finish a sort of stoney quality. Very mineral in short. It’s quite engrossing really, but I’d recommend not to chew in any bit when you drink this, as the tannic-forward nature can be quite distracting.

Love this: great salinity, tart, sour red fruit. Great alone and also with fish.

I was hoping for a bit more. Earthy. Interesting, but very subtle fruit notes. Never really blossomed.

Light, saline, peppery in a very Pinot D’Aunis kind of way, delicious.

Awesome, give it an hour to open up and it just sings. Like an Oregon/French pinot or gamay.

Tasty but very spicy wine, almost sour to the nose. It had pinot noir notes, but with the harsh flinty or slatiness I sometimes taste in Italian wines.

HAVE you ever wonder HOW A gentle Ocean Wave may taste like !?? .... Energy and insultingly young! ... So NOW add some dark cherry, wildflowers, coffee, a tiny bit of smoke, with hints of eucalyptus and pine. Long mineral super smooth finish with the right amount of funk that certify the honesty and bluntness of this beautiful caldo...
