Earth and herbs followed by bright and crunchy red fruit. A little animal but not enough to intrude on the deliciousness of this wine. Had it with burgers tonight, and not my usual pairing, but it worked well.
PnPed. It took a bit for the nose to come out. When it did it showed a crunchy herbal note and stones out front, with some tart cherry and cranberry fruit. It's light and tart on the palate - some green, along with herbal, stones, and very tart red fruits. The finish is tart fruit and stones. Hopefully this will improve with air: right now it's ok, but not what I was hoping for with my first Foillard. Nose - 4.5/6, Palate - 4/6, Finish - 4/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1/2 = 13.5/20.
Nez marqué par un beau fruit dominé par la cerise, on retrouve aussi des notes de sous-bois et d’épices douces. En bouche, à l’ouverture, j’ai remarqué un côté dilué (aqueux) désagréable. Cet aspect disparaît quelque peu avec le temps, mais on n’a pas toujours de deuxième chance de faire une bonne première impression! Il me reste une bouteille de ce vin, mais je vais attendre au moins un an avant d’y goûter à nouveau.
Sexy velvet purple. Burgundian aromas of earth, pine, menthol and cola. Impeccably well built with dusty red fruits, mushrooms, and old-vine sap. It has the texture of a great burgundy, but a beaujolais density. Irresistible Beaujolais. Drinking great now, but likely to improve for 5+ more years, as it is still very much about its gorgeous fruit.
12.8% - Clear, med ruby / clean, med to pronounced intensity - cranberry, wild strawberries, mushroom funk, wet earth, nutty, floral violet scent, if served blind I would have guessed a pinot from the cote d'or / dry, med+ acidity, med- silky tannin, med to light body, med+ intensity, persistent length, all in balance, very nice period. 92+ First experience with the Cuvee Corcelette. Even thought it is not as mineral and does not have the crunchy fruit of the Cote du Py, this remains so delicious in a more Burgundian way.
