Pours a red brwon colour, with a small head that fades soon, leaving a good lace. Aroma is sour, oak, berries, Medium to light body, carbonation is good, Surprisingly, taste is not as sour as the smell indicates, cherries, vanilla, fruits, all come in good for a round bitersweet taste. Refreshing and easydrinking,

Balsamic and sour in the smell but mostly on the grain in the taste. Less complex than the grand cru but it has definitely its own character. It's not too sour and is certainly underrated on this site. It's very refreshing and worked very well with some Abondance cheese. I'm sure it would be great with some foie gras with its light sweetness, fine fruity and hay notes and vinous body
