Written Notes

Ruby. Blueberries, scented, floral, detailed nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity, elegant, structured, leaner finish, long. Could be an off sample, one of very few to disappoint this vintage. 89-91

Deep colour. Intense Cassis, Blackberry pastille aromas with mocha oak complexity. Generous supple wine with blackcurrant pastille, graphite notes, fine dense grainy textures and underlying savoury oak. Finishes inky and long with plenty of sweet fruit.

  • 93p

Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Dark chocolate and crushed blackberries, with hints of blueberries in the background. On the palate well structured with ripe tannins, medium bodied character but convincing length. 93
