Um, pretty sure at least in NY Coturri IS distributed by Jenny & Francois.
I actually like most of their portfolio.Mark Lipton wrote:Or the guy (name redacted out of politeness) who brings in Cornelissen.
Who's the importer? I'm 1 for 2 in my tasting of Cornelissen, one great one at a big tasting, another that seemed possibly cooked. I realize (like say Scholium Project) they have heated supporters and detractors. I'd be happy to sample more, just a bit more expensive than my experimentation budget. But a lot of people I respect like the wines. I think Brian and Mark just blindly follow Bettane- natural wine haters!
But Coturri, I'd guess I've had 8-10 bottles. All but 3 undrinkably bretty. One that was actually pretty decent, one zin unflawed but pruney, and one red that actually bubbled/spewed out of the bottle as opened- I've never seen that elsewhere. Ever,
Sounds like a secondary fermentation. If I remember correctly Vieux Telegraphe had this problem many years ago and Kermit had to replace wine or return the purchaser's money. They actually had some bottles go boom and pop their corks I seem to remember.
