Monday, December 24, 2012 - Non-blind. Decanted 5 hrs bf Xmas dinner at Rest. Tani in Gaienmae (Tokyo).
Impression: Outstanding with extra all.
Thoroughlly and completely enjoyed, intense cold climate CF with distinction. Nose of intense raw fruit with butter notes and very promising.
in the mouth: Still young, pure and with a firm tannic grip. Raw red berry fruit with hints of a vegetal expression on a M body with M++ acids. Fair length. Still tightly knit and ought to unwind well over the years to come. The word of today is: vibrancy.
Will get some more. Next btl in ~2019, expecting to meet a beautiful butterfly. QPR!!! (Wife: 94)
Interesting side story:
the very sweet couple that runs Tani lived and worked in Chinon before they returned to Japan and subsequently started up Tani :-)
