BAD FROST, 10 HL/HA, OBLIGED TO BUY NON-ORGANIC HARVEST

2018 ()

(vat, bottling March 2019) attractive red robe; there’s good beat in an upbeat nose, raspberry fruit, the fruits gums airs I associate with Gamay. The palate links well to the nose, gives instant bright fruit, squeezy tannins, is all very drinkable. This is confirmed w.o.w. wine, drink till spring 2020, get on with it. “This was a year of hail, just 10 hl/ha, and I was obliged to buy in non-organic harvest,” Guillaume Clusel. Feb 2019

fine red robe. Has a likeably open red-fruited aroma that reflects strawberry and raspberry fruit, comes with a suave middle point. The palate presents fine fibre, good flow of fruit, aromatic strawberry on wheels. This is very easy to drink, toot, toot, is w.o.w. wine, good solo. 13°. Bottled 5 March 2018. To 2020 GB £8.49 J&B www.justerinis.com justbrooksorders@justerinis.com +44(0)207 484 6400  Nov 2018 Previously Feb 2018 ***(*) (vat, bottling March 2018) red robe. Red cherry, redcurrant aroma that is notably precise, has a wee roundness. The palate bears aromatic, fine red fruits; there is great purity, and enjoyable simplicity. The length is decent. This is w.o.w. wine that comes with bonny juice; it will be good solo, serve it chilled, or drink with charcuterie. To 2020 Feb 2018

2015

bottled two weeks ago: pale red robe. Has a floating, red cherry, crisp style nose, with licorice, a wee bit of earthiness. The palate gives direct fruit which is clear, tinkles away. This is attractive, a wine for a zinc counter, solo drinking, is w.o.w., easy to drink and red-fruited. 13.3°. 2019-20 Apr 2016
