Community Tasting Notes 8

    June 13, 2015 - So very gulpable and hits all of the expected and desired notes.

    March 9, 2015 - This didn't give quite as much pleasure as my first bottle, but still a damn good nouveau. The same reductive funk early on, but when it opened up the fruit was just a bit less exuberant than my previous bottle.

    January 27, 2015 - Decanted this and it benefited significantly from the added air. Some reduction upon opening that blew off over an hour or so. Just lovely fresh red fruits. Polished and classy. Great with pizza.

    January 5, 2015 - Now I'm a believer... That was fantastic stuff for nouveau. Sure, it doesn't cost $6, but it easily out punches its $18 price tag. Reductive at first, but the stink blew off after about 15 minutes of swirling/decant. Beautiful exuberant fruit, as one would expect, but umami notes that suggest cru beaujolais as well. In fact, much more fun and interesting than a lot of recent cru beaujolais that I've tried.
