Community Tasting Notes 2

    September 25, 2016 - Man, this is good. Tobacco, meaty with blueberry/blackberry notes. Grippy rustic tannins.
    Full but fresh and so easy to drink at the same time.
    Really awesome cabernet franc.

    November 18, 2009 - opened and poured, not much of a nose but still too cold, needs to come up to room temp. mouth feel is nice, a little spice on back end but nothing to much. No real tannin coming on either. A little farm yard coming on the nose at this point.

    (Domaine de la Butte Bourgueil Mi-Pente) From magnum. Rich, deep and slightly meaty fruit on the nose. This is certainly more concentrated than the 2007 above, and it has an attractive perfume too. The palate is full and rich, smoothly polished, but with lots of texture underneath. This is a big, concentrated and yet balanced style, rounded off by a big, grippy finish. Excellent potential I think.
