Community Tasting Notes 3

  • wgmccallum Likes this wine: 93 points

    March 26, 2020 - Fragrant strawberry aroma with an edge of barnyard, a promise of chocolate and vanilla, and a hint of oregano and cumin. Wide and weighty on the palate, pure dark fruit with a charge of tannin, aromatic after note in the singing finish. Colorful, quirky, rich, and dynamic.

    February 28, 2020 - L'élevage (classieux) est assez perceptible au nez, moins en bouche, où il est bien intégré. Très joli vin, on perçoit un peu de cassis, avec une finale sur une pointe d'agrumes.
