Aromas of presence. Creamy, brambly nuances, rhubarb, plum, violets and smoky vanilla oak notes. Plush and fresh palate, very round in the mouth and a lovely streak and line of freshness. The fruit starts very sweet, with a compote of black red fruits. Earthy, smoky flavours too and the oak is delicious and well judged, scaffolding the wine nicely. Even palate, not cloying in any way, despite the fruit sweetness. Wonderful slippery tannins to start and sandpaper tannins to close and draw out the wine. Superb, and multidimensional. 13/6/2020
Vibrant garnet-purple. Lifted aromas of red fruits, rose petals and dried herbs enhanced by cinnamon and earth. Medium bodied showing bright and fleshy layers of raspberry, redcurrant and darker fruit edges. Supple classy tannins leading to a soft-textured elegant finish.
