  • Overly bretty and heavy spritz from secondary fermentation that didn't improve after 24 hrs. Worst bottle so far. With the cost of averaging-out the bad bottles this ended up being a pretty poor value.

  • PnP. Similar to the bottle I had 6mths ago. Spritzy, bretty, gamey, earthy and a bit of spicy. This wine runs the gamut of flavours and keeps things interesting. Still enough fruit to keep going for a couple more years but really no reason to wait. Tannins are well integrated. Medium minus finish.

  • Coravin taste. Brett on the nose initially but blew off after 15 min, leaving red fruit and lovely florals on the nose. On the palate, this is fresh and lively with bright red fruits, nice balancing acidity, and just a touch of gaminess for nuance. Mid-weight, but really nice for its balance and freshness. Like this much better than the 07 Donjon tasted alongside. This was a great bargain at $28.

  • Free-flow Wagyu Beef Dinner and drinks (EN Dining Bar + Pine Close): Pop and poured.
    Appearance is clear, deep intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose medium+ intensity, with aromas of damp earth, smoky grilled meat, barnyard/horse stable/furry wild animal, spiced herbs and black pepper, licorice, dark black fruit, olive tapenade. Very complex nose. No doubt there is a Brett element here. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, medium acidity, medium+ alcohol, medum+ tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of grilled smoky meat, dark damp earth, leather, pepper, olive tapenade, dark redcurrant, black cherry, and a deep sweet core of licorice. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Nice early drinking from the difficult 2008 vintage. Can still develop a bit more over the next 3-4 years.
    The kind of wine for lovers of Brett and open-minded individuals.

  • My first Pegau, and I thought it was stellar. Normally I despise CdP for being overripe, bitter, and laden with cough medicine qualities, or, if not, then it tends towards simple and boring. This was none of that. I will be honest, there was a ton of brett. A lot. But it added interest for me, not the opposite. The fruit was sweet, pure and vibrant. I liked it a lot and will be a buyer in the future.
