Reply to "What are you drinking September 2020"

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.
