A medium-bodied and fairly toasty PN-dominated Champagne. Not heavy though, with good zestiness and acidity to make it refreshing. The effervescence seemed a lot softer than average, which made it quite easy-going and approachable. Not an overperformer but quite nice for the price.
A hefty, ripe-fruited Bourgogne on the palate but the nose, oh the nose. How this much brett is even possible in today's world is beyond me. Horse shit for days, I had to completely ignore the nose to be able to drink this.
Decanted for 45min or so, could have used more air. The nose is high-toned and red-fruited with notes of cherry, tar and roses with some mushroom as well, in other words very classic. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and quite resolved. There is structure but it has rounded out quite a bit. The flavor profile is correct and tasty, is somewhat one-dimensional. You are not fooled to think you are drinking something grand, while it is a well made wine. A perfectly nice, dry and savory expression, I do not mind drinking this instead of a Langhe Nebbiolo from a solid producer.
