Mild nose of cherries and earth. The wine is acid driven and in texture and structure almost like a white wine with a touch of tannin. A very elegant and taut feel with earthy secondary and peppery notes. Finishes strong with nice minerality. A unique burg in my experience. 18,000 yen off the list at Amour in Tokyo.
Decanted. All acid on the first sip, and took about 20 minutes to open up. Peppery nose. Lots of bright cherry. Great structure, great food wine. Seems between stages where the secondary notes haven't emerged in force yet and the primary notes are rather simple but enjoyable. Completely drinkable with a decant but also has the structure to wait.
I really enjoyed the structure of this wine. It had a solid framework of acid and subdued fruit. It wasn't a blow you away type of wine where one component of the wine grasps you and takes you away but it is a beautiful wine with food. The wine is very balanced, the tannins, fruit, acid, sweetness are all in place. Jack of all trades but king of nothing I guess.
