Community Tasting Notes 2

    January 27, 2015 - The grapes have been raisinated from the harvest until the 20th of April, 2005. After the crush, the grapes are macerated for 40 days to soak up and dissolve as much sugar from the raisined grapes as possible. Pressed on 30th of May, 2005. Aged in oak barrels. This is the first vintage ever of this wine.

    Very intense and fully translucent red color, as you'd expect from a Poulsard. The nose is super-rich, vibrant and remarkably floral with very sweet and complex aromas of cherry jam, some overripe plums, light notes of roses and orange blossom, a little bit of blueberry jam, a lifted hint of volatile acetone character and a touch of heady perfume. Overall very distinctive nose here. The wine is moderately full-bodied, rich and very sweet on the palate with smooth, velvety mouthfeel - yet enough rough edges to make the wine feel anything but soft. There are flavors of pronounced exotic spices, sweet black cherries, noticeable sour cherry bitterness, some sweet'n'tart cranberry juice, a little bit of candied orange zest and a touch of plum liqueur. The wine is high in acidity, but shows no tannins whatsoever - which is typical of Poulsard. The finish is very long, sweet and complex with bright, high acidity that keeps the wine from tasting sticky. There are persistent, layered flavors of exotic spices, cocktail cherries, tart lingonberries, some perfumed floral tones and a hint of overripe plums in the aftertaste.

    A delicious, complex and harmonious red sticky that shows impeccable balance between the sweetness and the acidity. From its appearance and nose, one would expect a wine that's very heavy and unctuous, but true to the Tissot style, this wine is remarkably delicate, refreshing and precise on the palate. A delicious wine that can be matched easily with different sweeter desserts or plates with assorted - even some more challenging - cheeses. Seeing how youthful the wine is at 10 years of age, I can wager a guess it'll easily live for another decade or two - if not even longer. Terrific, great value at 45€.
