Pours a completely clear amber colour and an off white head with zero retention. Aroma's: sourish, just slightly funky, and I get a hint of butter? Retronasal it's sourish, woody/tnnine, vinous - a bit sherry-like. Flavour is sour with light sweetness. Light bodied. Good carbonation. Finishes with something like liquor, but that's probably the vin jaune.

Dark clear amber, small white head. Very grapey and juicy. Massive barrel, oak, walnut, we have the delight of a side glass of vin jaune which really helps to find the notes. Medium to quite sour. Medium body, soft carb.

Bottle shared next to some vin jaune. Clear amber with small white head. Lactic sourness, walnuts, dried red fruits, soft vanilla, apricot, peaches. Medium sour and sweet. Full bodied. Really nice, there's some of the wine but it's still very much it's own thing.

Thanks Maakun! Near clear golden orange with an off white head. Aroma is vinous, oxidized Vin Jaune notes, tart grapes, soft funk and oak. Flavour is moderate sour. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Excellent.
