Oh my that volcanic stank. Sulfur blows off (mostly) with a long decant and vigorous swirling, revealing a peppery nose, whiffs of hickory smoke and cherry lozenge. Cranberry and brambly green herb notes on the palate. Drying tannins on the finish. Similar profile to Jura poulsard or Loire pineau d’aunis. Love the pepperiness; wish there was more fruit. Pretty austere.

I tasted 8 separate listan negro wines from this producer and each bottle was incredibly reduced. Strong burnt rubber and rotten egg, presumably mercaptan although it did eventually blow off. I tasted them each day and on day 10 they started to smell better. After 14 days they all were very enjoyable. Yes, 14 days for the sulfur compounds to retreat.

Serious organic wine for serious RED meats ... HAS to be decanted AND WAIT a 10 minutes min before drinking !! ... If you run into any 2017 or below chances are it will be dead depending on how the seller have been storing this jewel..:

Ett stycke kärvt vulkanjuice. Bryggkaffe, gröna stjälkar och sura bär. Betydligt mer inbjudande doft än smak just nu. Mycket tanin och en del fatdrag. Bör nog lagras några år.
