2008 Vintage drunk in 2008.

Glorious colour of orange red with some brick orange around the edges. No head and very low carbonation. Looks like wine.

Amazing nose that screams old oak barrels. Some real strong nutty notes (possible sulfides) are quickly over run by beautiful cherry and raspberry aromas. Then the funk arrives. Not over the top - more earthy funkiness than overtly strong Brett - kind of subdued. Maybe a touch antiseptic with air/warmth. SO much like a Burgundy it is not funny.

Some delicious sour cherry fruit dominates the palate, with some hints of other red fruits. The cherry really picks up with air/warmth and helps level out the very strong acidity. Some sweetness on the mid palate which gives this a real cherry candy feel. Drying tannins. Cantillon class as always.

As with the other Cantillons I have tried, this will not be everyones cup of tea. But I dig it...so complex.
