Cherry schnapps

Following my previous experience, I was willing this particular Chablis to perform even better.

Domaine Begue-Mathiot, Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume 2004
Alas, it was corked.

When it comes to mistaking certain aromas for cork taint, I do have previous. However, this smelt and tasted of cherry schnapps and nothing else. I know this because we recently bought a bottle of cherry schnapps off a friend who lives in the Black Forest. Best cherry schnapps in the world, in my humble opinion. Shame about the wine.

(Note to German speakers: "Schnaps" really is "Schnapps" in English!)
