over the past two night - 2017 Eric Texier Brezeme. Now this is a wine I own a few cases of in different vintages and typically enjoy. Some friends of mine split a case of the '17 on my reccomendation and after some time sent me this bottle to try. It's not right. Not flawed - no brett or TCA or VA etc... As Mrs. VeV said "it smells like hot leather and drinks like olive tapenade" and refused to drink anymore of it. I like olive/saline notes in syrah, but this was like drinking a tapenade smoothie. No fruit whatsoever and enamel peeling acidity. I had hoped it would get better overnight but it didnt budge. A shame.
