2009 Domaine le Briseau Patapon
- Loire Valley
- Coteaux du Loir
Community Tasting Notes 5
September 14, 2013 - Chatham. Just at brink of pouring down the drain due to signs of post-bottling fermentation overwhelming redeeming fruit, but hours later the balance had shifted to worthwhile potability.
March 28, 2013 - bigger in style compared to recent vintages. Took some time to open up, herbal, big red fruit, medium finish. Enjoyed this.
December 19, 2012 - Lovely combination of bright fruit and funk. Less Pineau D'Aunis pepper than previous bottle. A wine of great delight and great character. Perfect with a mildly spicy pork/red pepper/mushroom stirfry.
March 17, 2012 - Lovely and fresh with unmistakable tasty Pineau D'Aunis flavors. Dark in color and not light in expression, but I think it will be a delight when spring fully blossoms and into the summer barbecue season.
June 21, 2011 - Darker fruit profile with fresh cherries and plum. Charcoal, gunpowder and herbs.
Medium bodied and refreshing with some grip. Again a charcoaly/gunpowdery palate with just enough fruit (meaning I don't need more). Mid-length.
More sophisticated and stylish than the Les Mortiers, but still of fine uniqueness.
