If there's a truer, more soulful wine I haven't had it. You can taste the hard work and non-pretension of the husband and wife.

Such a great expression of place. Wet earth, crushed tart cherries, black olive, tarragon, and pomegranate all carried along with a lively acidity and some really pleasant funk. This is a gem.

Beautiful. Fruit, earth, acid, texture, and almost refreshing. Another Bibou friend. R14.

Funky fruit citrus nose but taste is straight up sour cherry, pomegranate, cranberry zone. Could pass for a crazy Cantillon. In other words, it rules.

Salty, bitter pet fish food. Yes I love it.

Light body with a tiny bit of effervescence and some earthiness. I'm into it.

Interesting specimen. Unfiltered. There is a slight effervescence up front which adds a spicy textural note, but quickly disappears. The palate is sour, sour cherry which transitions to deeply funky, earthy flavors. Think dusty barnyard and damp leaves. The acidity is off balance from my perspective, a touch too tart. That said, I am becoming a fan of Lemasson's use of indigenous varietals and a funky, fun, earthy winemaking style.

Very refreshing for a red, light body with an almost effervescent mouth feel. Beautiful cherry red color.
