Community Tasting Notes 3

    November 7, 2019 - Appearance: Pale brown, with legs and petillance

    On nose: med- intensity, not much fruit, territory aroma: some earthiness and leafiness.

    On palate : high and sharp cut acidity, med+ tannin, no fruit flavour, only sour and sour taste with light body and a little bit leafiness and bitterness.

    This wine is obviously over peak and I believe that is corked. Just want to see whether an old wine can stand still or not.

    January 12, 2014 - Not much change since before, a bit mure on the nose and rather four square fruit. Hold.

    December 25, 2010 - Positive pinot fruit - very youthful and no real secondary characteristics yet. Decent but leave for 5 years at least.
