Community Tasting Notes 5

  • BurgunDivine Does not like this wine:

    July 21, 2020 - Some brett on the aftertaste of my bottle prevent it from providing real pleasure.

    Bretté sur cette bouteille, pas de réel plaisir possible.

    July 18, 2020 - Fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts, aged in egg-shaped concrete tanks. Bottled under a Vinolok glass stopper. 12% alcohol. Tasted half blind.

    Pale yellow-green color with deeper lemon-yellow overtones. Upon opening quite clean and fruity nose, but opens up rather quickly into something more funky and natty with aromas of ethery volatile acidity, some waxy funk, a little bit of aldehydic green apple slice character and a hint of honeyed richness. The wine is wild, medium-bodied and quite delicate on the palate with flavors of tart green apples, some saline mineral tones, a little bit of hay, light aldehydic notes of sorrel and a slightly rough hint of acetic VA. There seems to be a sesame seed-like touch of something grainy suggesting that the aftertaste is going to be mousy. The acidity feels quite high, lending a balanced feel to the wine. The finish is crisp, tangy and quite saline with quite long flavors of lemony citrus fruits, some tart green apples, a little bit of hay and, finally, a good deal of mousiness. At first the unclean THP character is a mere suggestion, but after 10-15 seconds of swallowing the wine, the nutty, kernel-y and bready flavors of mousiness emerge like a wave, overwhelming all the fresh and crunchy qualities of the aftertaste.

    Ugh. A disappointment. Without the mousiness, this could've been a quite nice and fresh little Alpine white. Without the mousiness and the elevated levels of acetic VA this would've been a very lovely effort. However, it turned to be a somewhat generic natural wine where the natty qualities overwhelmed most of the varietal color and any sense of place. Feels overpriced for the quality at 26€.

    July 14, 2020 - Blind tasting on my own, thanks to the confident stockist. Mature hue, nose of roots, baked apples, reduced and showing a natural profile. Mouth as annouced by the nose : expressive, reduced and straight. Yeast, old orange peal, apple keffir, wet ground. Specific. I had few time les Alpes before, and I don't remember this pronounced natural style.

    April 19, 2020 - God I love this wine. Precise aromatics with sea salt, lime peel, chalk, ginger. Precision on the palate is great, gorgeous texture, live wire acidity. Chunks of lemon, grapefruit and nectarine, slightly oxidative but so bright. Complex notes of sea sale, quinine, chalky. Slightly "natty" but so precise and fresh. Intense yet elegant, I'd love to taste this in a decade.

    March 4, 2020 - Light gold color. Small glass over 30 minutes. Here's a fun one; lacquer, white peach, green apple, smoky dry stones on the nose. Light medium bodied, excellent lacquered minerality, slightly oxidative, tart green fruits, good acid, love it. 90+ to 91pts.
