Fine and lingering red fruit aromatics followed by a beautiful harmony of freshness, intensity and length. Drinking very well now. Glad I have more

Helllloooo kirsch! Sweet cocoa ganache, cloves cinnamon, herbs de Provence and pure raspberry fruit lead the way to the essence of Elysium. The palate is svelte, suave and full of heavenly purity, coated in a cashmere frame that is all in finesse. Gains more and more sappy richness in time, bringing a pure, knee-buckling sense of heaven to the lips w/ each sip. Who needs cuvees?! Believe it or not, this will get better in time....97 points

WOW, great wine with rich and deep fruit reserves. Raspberry, blackberry, mminerals and spice all mixed up to give you a flavor profile that lingers on and on. The nose shows nice fruit with richness and it continues to develop nuance as it opens up during the night. 4.5/5

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
