Tasting Notes:
Distinguished, fresh, elegant, balanced, with unmatched complex aromas, this 2013 is really impressive and thoroughly seductive, a wine already displaying remarkable harmony and finesse.

On the nose it opens on subtle hints of rich, almost candied, red berries followed by aromas of lightly toasted cocoa. The mouthwatering palate is long, full and very rounded with silky tannins.

Critic Reviews:
'Mid crimson. Lively and scented and not yet closed down, it seems. Then on the palate it is flatter and almost flattened, closing down perhaps but with paper-fine compact texture. Needs time but has fine freshness on the finish.' b>16.5/20 (Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com)
