I jest… its not bad but not my favourite. For me its all structure and not enough fruit. A bit like an army tank - built for strength and power but not for comfort!
Tanks definitely need more fruit
Probably comes into its own with a good cassoulet!
Rich fruitcake flavours, acidity provides structure not tannin, quite a chewy texture. and a warming spicy finish.
Ooh yes, shall we talk food matches? I like this. Anyone else got any suggestions?
A quick decant might help it open up a bit. Or even an extra year in the rack
Exactly -cranberries cooked with too little sugar…
In case anyone’s interested, this has a drink date of Now to 2024 on our website!
I find it quite sour (if you can find a wine sour?), but then I do like sour beer so that’s probably why I’ve finished my glass!
Anyone want to give this a mark out of 10 before we do a poll to find our wine of the night?
We can also go back to the Bin Series after that if anyone has yet to try it? Just shout!
You’re so cool! Only discerning people like sour beers
Should be really good with cheese, I imagine…
7 out of 10 from us.
4.75/10 for me in afraid!
Very precise! I settled on 5…
So, we opened this Mondeuse last Sunday, had two small glasses then vacuvined it and went away to London for a few days. Today it was softer, very little tannin or acidity and a lot easier on the palate than a lot of you have experienced. Still not a lot of flavour though.
Six here. I preferred the brightness of the Gamay.
A 6 from us.
I’m giving it a 6. Good structure but little flavour.
My vigorous swirling has resulted in a damp jumper (again!). It’s a 6/10 for me - based on it improving with food and time.
