    October 22, 2021 - Chocolate and black cherry. A little unbalanced

    October 17, 2021 - Tasting Training for WSET Level 4, Units D4 + D5 - Session 9: The wine has a medium ruby colour. The nose has medium(+) intensity and shows primary characteristics of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry, red cherry,) and black fruit (blackberry, plum).

    On the palate the wine is sweet, with medium acidity, medium tannin that is perceived as dry but fine, medium alcohol, and a medium body. The flavour intensity is medium(+), flavours mirror the nose and include primary characteristics of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry, red cherry,) and black fruit (blackberry, plum). The finish has medium(+) length.

    This is a very good quality wine since it has good intensity, shows clean and precise primary fruit characteristics, the alcohol is well-integrated, and the wine has good length. To be considered being of outstanding quality the wine would need greater length and even greater complexity.

    This wine is defined by its primary fruit and is ready to drink, and while it will keep for a number of years thanks to its high alcohol and high sugar it will not improve with further time and is to be considered not suitable for further ageing in bottle.

    NB: Much fresher than the Chez Jau Rivesaltes Grenat 2010.
