Brun, Roger: Cuvée des Sires 2005

Golden color with a modest effervescence and fat tears on the glass. The aroma is very interesting with yeast, offal of beef, blood, toasted hazelnuts with salt, apricot, pear, prunes and a sweet touch of Sauternes-like. It is surpisingly elegant on the palate with refined yeasts, hazelnut oil, apricot, a touch of pouriture noble, plums and some sundried tomato on the mid palate adding a nice bitter touch. The finish is long and yeasty with young comté cheese and mild acidity. It’s evolving fast and will show tertiary notes soon.
