4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (375 ml). As Burgundy Origins. From O’s, thanks! Deep burgundy/amber with a medium fully lasting off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of ketchup at first, followed by red fruits, oak, vanilla, tannic notes and light caramel. Taste is slightly sweet and amazingly complex with red fruits, oak, caramel, light ketchup, acidic notes, vinous notes and vanilla. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Vinous mouthfeel. Slightly dry. Super example of the style. Really complex. Balance is nearly perfect, especially for the taste. Not too acetic. Nice fruitiness. Really drinkable.
