Re: TN 05 Vissoux Beaujolais, 05 Souhaut Syrah


Interesting to read your impressions of it, Dale. I'm surprised that you found it as tannic as you did, because one of its greatest appeals to us was that, unlike so many '05 Bojos, it was quite open and approachable. In fact, it's probably been my favorite '05 for near-term drinking, even more so than the Brun and Tete that I included in that list.

I just think its a child of 2005. Most Beaujolais in most vintages I find basically no noticable tannins. Some 2005s are tannic enough to basically demand cellaring. This isn't one of those, but the tannins were quite noticable to me (especially just on opening). But after 30 minutes quite approachable. I don't remember noticing tannins on the '05 Brun L'Ancien, but I certainly did on the Brun crus.
