Community Tasting Notes 8

    February 16, 2022 - Ruchè pour Homme
    The January 2017 note remains applicable, particularly the rich mid-palate of raspberry preserves, and the comparatively brief finish. Hoisin, which might reasonably encompass the sweet potato and bacon also sensed. Not a lot of cherry. Tremendous for $25,

    albeit the 2019 Parize VV Givry combines the relative opulence of this with the better integration of the B-MM Fussiere '11 for the same price, I've just happily learned a month later. That's the cheap 1er to get!

    February 27, 2020 - Amazing nose right off. Medium body. Medium flavor – acidic. Good wine, not wonderful. Probably could go a few more years.

    July 22, 2018 - This was quite an ugly duckling a couple of years back, but now its starting to mature and the angular and pointy tannins are backing down and the struck-match, tangy elements are not intruding on the rest of the wine. A streak of rusty nail-like flavour still hits the palate but it works really well with the celary-stick and meaty elements of the fruit. I think this will turn into quite a little funky beast in a few years - well worth holding some to see what happens.

    Beautiful colour of this as well; it looks like a good wine as soon as it is poured. Very good for the price.

    February 20, 2018 - Edit: after being open for 30-60 min, this shut down and became fairly unpleasant. Left on counter and tasted over the next 3 days with steady improvement. Have one other bottle that I will likely hold for at least 3-5 years.

    PNP. Dark garnet, almost inky in the center of the glass. Nose is red and some black cherries, a bit of flowers and root beer. If tasting blind, I would have guessed Oregon. Less expressive in the mouth... notes of cherries and charcoal, medium bodies, modest acid and pretty long finish. I’d say 90 for the nose/finish and 88 for the palate. Splitting the difference.

    September 9, 2017 - {First bottle of a case purchased on release, prof. storage, perfect bottle} Grantsky's note seems perfectly on target, positive notes to him/her. Nose and aromatics are of a wine in 87-90 range and yet in the mouth there is a muted quality on the initial attack (84-87) and one's initial impression, with still the promise of more acrobatics in the future.... while the mid palate size is substantive, length seems almost artificially shut down and a bit short. Flavors of big dark fruit. interesting! So for now 87 with some pluses for potential. My read is it will lengthen out and get more complex with a few more years on it. Glad to own it and wish to convey my belief that it has potential for improvement.

    [$27 on release, in 2014 or early 2015.]
