Friday, December 14, 2012 - This bottle underperformed compared to others I've tasted from Joan Sangenis. May have been slightly corked? Had some woody notes on nose and palate that were a bit distracting.
Other than that, good dark fruit w/ very nice rich mouthfeel - quite strong slate/mineral component on palate & finish. Good, high levels of acidity. It just seemed to have been a bit over-oaked (or was possibly a slightly off-bottle.)
