Best’s Old Vine Pinot Meunier 2019

Translucent red colour with clear edges. A distinctly fragrant nose of rose petals, musk, red and black cherries. So much to love. Time open does it no harm. An earthy, anchoring note ticks in with several swirls of the glass – dried herbs and aniseed. Ethereal and haunting, red fruits continue to unfurl, with acidity tailored perfectly. A treasure. Drink now to 2030. 97 points – Nick Butler, The Real Review

Made from the world’s oldest Pinot Meunier vines (planted in 1868) and only produced in exceptional vintages. Best’s Old Vine is iconic not only because of its limited production and rarity but because it is simply a lovely drink. Young or old, it amazes for its balance, length, flavours, longevity and it’s simple drinkability.

I feel a compulsion to swallow some of a wine I taste in the normal 70 or so wines sampled per day for the Wine companion, but I plead guilty here. Its unique 150+ years of history makes if impossible for this wine to be made anywhere else in the world. Even if you were just tasting history it would have its call, but when you add in a very good vintage and sure hands in the winery you would likely buy it just for its quality. Light but bright crimson, its length is prodigious, its scented bouquet a siren call, the palate silk. 98 points – Halliday Wine Companion 2019 (2017 Vintage)
