commonshawn (1011) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Big bottle from France 44 in goblet with commonmac. Light plum with thick but smooth off white head, and healthy amount of sediment. Tons of dark fruit yeast in the nose. Malty, then dark fruit sweet and sour, then fruity chocolate at the end. Some cherry and oak type flavors in there. A bit drying, good full body. Solid Grand Cru, professionally done. Didn’t quite get my Rocs off on this one, but nearly so.
