Enjoyed as the Pinot d’Aunis 75CL at Cantillon in March of 2015. Split 2 ways in tasters.

A - Purple pour, dark pink in the glass with a 2 finger pink head.

S - Nose is great. Very vinous with grape skin, merlot, some cherry and lemon tart.

T - Taste is nice. More wine forward than any other Cantillon I’ve had. Like sniffing a red wine that’s been diluted with lemonade.

M - Thin, not a lot of mouthfeel, very one-dimensional. Tastes single barrel and not a blend

O - Despite the lack of body, the taste of this was really wonderful!

Dark oily ruby red with a thin layer of pink foam. The smell is grapey sour. No carbonation. The taste goes into the direction of red wine/grapes, while being sour with a spicey, kind of peppery, note. The aftertaste contains a little sour kick when you swallow it. Surprising and pleasant.

SinH4 (545) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2015
At the brewery. Dark purple-reddish color with small pinkish head. Funk and grapes, acidity. Taste is vineous, grapey and sour, nice amount of hay. Very dry finish. Fizzy carbonation. Very distinct, but hard to describe. Fantastic!

aleigator (340) - GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
Has a sherry, dark red, very saturated color, with a small, fizzy head. Smells of oaky barnyard, wet hay, ripe, spicy grapes, wrapped up by a pleasant sourness, inheriting apple skin and citrus peel. Tastes of red, matured grapes which got an earthy pepperiness to them, as well as balancing, mellow, wooden malts. The pepper is recognizable in the most pleasant way, accentuating the rich grape foundation of the beer, brought down to a round figure by a tart, fruity acidity. Due to the spicy pepper infusion this becomes much more complex than any druiven lambic I have tasted so far, complimenting the stone qualities of the grapes, as well as adding a maturing, oaky aspect to them. Finishes very tart, sour, with a convincing dry note to it, revealing characteristics of a young, slightly fermented wine.

Martinus (3434) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2015
Purple red, crimson colour, pink head. Very fruity, grapes, lactic acid, nice funky notes. Light sour flavour, fruity grapes, red fruits, not so much wine but more fresh grape character. Feels quite fresh overall anyway. Fruity finish, light citrus, lingering lactic acid. Nice! (from 75cL bottle @ the brewery. As Pinot d’Aunis)

andrew_drinks (217) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle at Cantillon, as Pineau d’Aunis. Deep and clear ruby, thin head. Rich cherry and plum aroma, some funky Brett but mostly rich stone fruit. Light and spritzy body - very drinkable. Medium acidity, nowhere near as harsh as expected, much more balance than St Lamvinus. Some residual grape juice sweetness. Sourness intensifies on the finish, lightly minerally. Very easy to drink.
