2004 Yanninck Amirault Bourgueil La Coudraye


Clear black purple in color, medium+ intensity. On the nose, aroma, and a very unique aroma at that. It wreaked of veggies, pencil shavings, perfume, stemmy notes, not oaky, very earthy in a pleasant way. On the palate, dry, med tannin, med acidity, currants, brussel sprouts, and loads of earth. This is one of those fascinating outside of the box wines that will entice you to buy more obscure wines you have never heard of, and put the Aussie plonk Shiraz back on the shelf.
