Community Tasting Note

  • Mr Coone wrote: 92 points

    September 26, 2020 - Cherry red colour with small evolution in the rim.
    Very intense nose with aroma's of cedar, cherry, caramel, chocolate, prune and liquorice.
    A powerful start on the palate with smooth tannins (although there were some unripe hints in it).
    Aroma's of smoke, cedar, vanilla, ripe cherry, prune, paprika (the unripe aroma) and leather.
    Finish of 12 caudalie

    A very good wine, although the green, unripe hints (not much) in the aroma's were a little bit disturbing.

    It's something that's being used by sommeliers. Don't know why though :-)
