Live From Gaston Winebar - Part Two

Next up a wine from a natural wine maker - yes I know - but you have to challenge yourself sometimes...:-)

2013 Brouilly V.V., Jean-Claude Lapalu
From a fresh opened bottle it starts of with a funky, chicken yard nose that within minutes transforms into a much more friendly nose with notes of cranberries, herbs, paint, pine resin and a hint of saw dust. I like this nose.
The taste is high strung with fresh red berries in the shape of lingonberries, red currants and cranberries, with a high acidity and some forest floor notes. Long and with a fine dryness. But it is a tad hollow in the middle taste. Ascetic. Liked the nose, but not the taste as much. I guess it would come out better with food.
84p   (tasted 2015/05)

Now of to a wine tasting! :-)
