Love this vintage of this. Awesome cranberry, violets, floral, tree bark, big gamey grapey, cherry. So so mesmerizing. What a nose. Incredibly fresh and deep. Amazing texture and so juicy with high pitched acids and lovely velvety and sweet tannins. This is very fine. Superb structure. This will be better in 3-4 years but terrific today.

Much better than a recent Corcelette opened but still shows some 15 gunk. Nose is floral, a bit stewy, nice pastille, warm meadow and some granite. Smells like 15 for sure. But like a Foillard 15. Palate is fresh and a skoche hot but nice texture and length. Good not great.

Nose is very nice and aromatic but very natural. Spiced fruit, mulled cherries, flowers and very pungent. Good stony background. Good balance aromatically. Terrific purity and structure. Nice sweetness and very fresh. Long. Still has years to go. But drinking great today. Really impressed by the structure of this 2013. A great debut.

More fruit driven and less funk than other '15 and '14 Folliart's. Still a pleasure.

And pulled pork sandwich was the best thing consumed in Atlanta last night. I’m sure of it

Nose is very complex, with a sweet musky component, cinnamon, ripe cherry, and cracked stones. Opens in a surprisingly lean fashion that initially shows little fruit but then transitions to pure cherry fruit and clean stony notes as the long finish progresses. Light bodied and with crisp acids. Very distinctive style.

UPDATE: Night 2: more traditionally Beaujolais-like on the nose, with the sweet muskiness receding and intensely granitic minerality and tart cherries in the fore. In the mouth, the pungency of the tart cherry fruit is almost SweeTart-candy-like. Mouth-watering acids in the long finish. Upping it from a 9.0 to a 9.2.

Fantastic. Everything. Everything you should ask for in a bottle of wine. Twists, turns, ups, downs, all that make sense together, but that you've never seen before. Sorry to get too deep, but this wine is so worth the nerdiness. Lemon and fennel, strawberries and briny cheese, that touch of gaminess you hope will be there. I want this wine every day.
