Gros Frere et Soeur Richebourg 2005

Medium ruby.
Medium nose intensity. Floral nose (rose petal and magnolia), black berry, raspberry, a bit cherry note (sometimes like sour cherry kriek, and sometimes like black cherry), a bit green leaves note (at beginning, but decreases), dust and light metal mineral smell, light leather (increases with breathing), light wet soil, red apple, root beer, chilli pepper skin and black pepper, coffee and cookie and butter from oak aging, and sometimes has light lemon smell.

The body is medium with high acidity and medium tannin (still young). Palate has distinct dark fruits flavor, especially black berry. Still in its young stage, can keep for 10+ years. The lingering length ends with guava and date note.

SY: 19/20
