4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2009 Bottle in our hotel room post night of the great thirst. Bright red pour, slightly hazy with thin pink head. Aroma is really nice, fruity cherries, balanced funk, really nice aroma, waxy fruits. Taste is tart, not too sour, really nice leafy fruitiness, slightly cheesy, really good dosage of cherry, not too in your face and sweet. Palate is soft, light-med bodied, light mineral carbonation. Really nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille 75cl année 2009. Belle couleur rouge foncé, peu de mousse, assez bien carbonatée. Nez sur les cerises acidulées, le vinaigre de cidre. En couche, c’est semblable au nez avec en plus des notes de bois et de cerises mûres, le tout est très complexe.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 2005 vintage, with hella thanks to bull11zeye! Pours hazy red with minimal lacing and little head. Aroma has strong cherry notes, cherry skins and stems, some funk, musty basement and barnyard. Flavor is cherry skins, cherries, funky basement stuff. Light plus tartness, but really drying on the palate. Gets better as you get into it and ends up quite lovely. Medium body, flat carbonation. Nice nice nice.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample I sort of ran across courtesy of Masse (non-RB). Thanks man, have been hoping to try this for quite some time. Pours vibrant hazy ruby red with a rather small frothy pinkish white head that leaves some soapy trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour, fruity and funky with crackers, sour cherries, lemon juice, leather, barnyard, hay, dry soil, horseblanket, lemon zest, cherry pits and hints of cherry pie. Taste is sour, fruity and funky with crackers, tons of sour cherries, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, leather, dry soil, hay, barnyard, horseblanket, cherry hard candy, unripe raspberries, red currants and moist wood. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, mouthpuckering and medium bodied. Finish is sour, fruity and funky with crackers, sour cherries, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, hay, leather and barnyard. Very very nice...
