Nose is mostly raspberry and kirsch for me. The palate, though, is really interesting; a combination of cherry liqueur, blood, and tart acids. It's the sanguine flavor that really get me -- I'm a fan. But I could use a little more of a counterpoint to the fruit and tart. Still -- a wine worth watching, and I am glad that Bosquet is on my radar.
Extremely ripe fruit on the nose, with some raisins and tons of dark fruit. Blackberries, plums and morello cherries. Perfumed spiciness, something slightly green and lots of oak.
Medium(-) acidity, sweetish fruit, full bodied, high intensity, long finish. Distinct alcoholic warmth. This is bombastic to the max. Not a big fan though, and I'm really missing all the CdP funkyness! This is way to clean! :)
