From magnum. I took this to an industry party and it was drained fairly quickly. From my couple of sips, it's a gorgeous wine. Tart red fruit and minerality, excellent depth and concentration. Never heavy but plenty of ripe pomegranate and raspberry. Acidity too, well integrated but ever-present. Smooth, gentle finish kept things classy.
Aromas of crunchy red berry fruit, cranberry with baking spice and earth tones. Still young, but drinking quite well already. Good acidity on the palate with tart red fruit and lower tone earth and mineral notes. Good length. Gahier is simply a great producer; I've yet to have anything that I haven't enjoyed.
Started off a little spritzy on day one - almost like it had just been bottle. Seemed weightier than a typical Trousseau, maybe a little more serious. It was drinking much better on day two and had calmed down quite a bit.
Did not quite measure up to expectations. Will definitely try again given all the recommendations.
Nose of cherry liqueur and cola. Palate is thin and smooth, with raspberry and bitter liquorice root. Spritzy and violently acidic. It's smooth and the strong raspberry flavour is appealing, but for me it's far too bitter and acidic to have any appeal.
Weygandt Wine BYO (Weygandt Wines, Cleveland Park, Washington D.C.): What a great showing from this bottle. The aromatics were complex with cranberry, rose, pepper, dill and sour cherry elements - it reminded me of the smells of walking through a forest in autumn. One taste and this just swept me away. Such an airy and silky palate that offered up incredibly exotic and powerful notes of rose, earth, cranberry, and mushrooms. Great wine.
