  • Farge: rød til brunrød. Aroma av baconfett, plomme, blåbær, svak pepper, mm. I munnen er den medium fyldig og relativt myk, men har nok syre/tannin i bakgrunnen til at den fungerer godt sammen med mat. Saftig anslag og tørrer fra midten av smakskurven og ut. God vin, men mangler litt på å bli ordentlig engasjerende. Fungerte godt til grillet kylling og and.

  • Seems a bit sour and stewed on the nose, with aromas of acidic fruit, with a slight hint of acetone. A bit sweet on the palate, with hints of milk chocolate. This is not holding up very well. Did not get better with time. I don't think it is a bad bottle. Just wine that did not age well. I initially had a low score on this, but have removed it as it might be this was an off bottle. I have four more, so am looking forward to trying them to see if this is an anomaly or not!

  • my last note applies perfectly, unfortunately i only read it once i had decanted at 2pm, on the pnp this was nice with straight up syrah fruit and a touch of spice, put back in bottle two hours later and went to bridge match, by 6pm fruit had faded and it was mostly oak-water, heavy and not enjoyable… maybe leave for ten years but my bet is this is best served soon and without any decant

  • This bottle was a little more expressive than the last. Decanting for 4 hours may have helped as well. More open, richer and better textured. Quite enjoyable

  • Drinking beautifully. Slight browning at the edge, medium bodied, silky with the signature Cote Rotie bacon fat aromas. Time is always friendly to the consistently well made Brune et Blonde.
