Community Tasting Notes (17) Avg Score: 90.5 points

  • Severe, concentrated, good bitters, firm body, elements you don't expect
    tasting a beaujolais. wait at least another three years and you will become rewarded (potential: 92/93 points). My friend Frans de Beer combined this beast with a perfectly prepared quail and it went very well.

  • Tight and brooding, with dark fruit, leather, and a little spice wrapped in a sheath of tannin. It became markedly less surly with air, but could still use time.

  • P 'n p. Fresh and pretty aromas of red fruit, flowers, earth, and fleeting hints of sappy green plants. Similar on the palate, delicate and pretty, with excellent acidity. Tart red fruit, hibiscus, a touch of sap, and underlying rocky, mineral earth. Light but discernible tannins. With air, some mouthwatering salinity develops. Light bodied, juicy, highly drinkable, good stuff.

  • A Lighter Session (Extra Space): Maybe I was too generous with the points previously or this bottle just didn't perform as well as my previous experience with it.
    Appearance is clear, medium intensity, ruby colour.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of perfumed flowers, bright red fruit (raspberries, red cherries), and light oak. Youthful.
    On the palate, high acidity, low alcohol, low tannins, medium- body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of red cherries, raspberries, floral essences, and sweet earth. Medium finish. Very bright and refreshing mouth-feel.
    Very good quality. Can drink now, but has he potential to age well over the next few years.
    Made biodynamically from two parcels of vines, one 45 years old and the other 110 years old (planted before World War I).

  • Gulp-able Beaujolais. This bottle had some of the funk on the nose, but the palate was clean. A slight sweet note to start and finish makes this alluring and difficult to stop drinking. 12.5% ABV
