From another great vintage, with 12 months élevage in French oak barriques, of which 20% were new. Exhibiting the typical characters of mixed red berries with a general spiciness to the velvety, viscous, well balanced and rounded palate. Powerful wine, with fine, supple tannins and a fabulous length. Great longevity again, but regardless, this will immediately appear on wine lists matched to grilled red meats without any detriment. 15.0% alc/vol
Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW - 8th August 2017
Medium deep crimson. Fresh dark cherry, blackberry herb garden aniseed aromas with espresso notes. Inky textured wine with lovely ripe dark cherry, blackberry fruits, slinky fine chalky tannins, underlying savoury nuances and bitter chinotto-like finish. Elegantly styled wine with lovely aromatic complexity and vigour. 15% Alc. 95 points – 2022-2038
