Delicious. Cherry and gamey and herbal but light and fantastic with a slight chill.

Super interesting shit. Earthy funkiness, that tastes like cranberry pine with a hickory smoke finish.

Fresh fresh juice. Tastes like it’s heart is still beating. Slightly piney on the nose (smell the inside of an acoustic guitar), strawberry jams and herbs. Bitter red fruit, deceptively sneaky tannin, soft finish that leaves a vague reminder of fruit that now doesn’t seem so tart.

Sebastien David is known for what he can do with cab franc. Hurluberlu is fresh, fruity, and mysterious with no indication of the vintage anywhere. The importer (T. Edward) informed me this is 2018. It’s very good.

Concrete only, whole cluster, but less crunchy and pyrazine driven than what I was expecting. It’s elegant, soft, and loaded with minerals. Salty air playing against sour wild blueberries, green strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Bullseye ripe.
