James Suckling: 93 pts

"Plenty of spicy and toasty oak on offer here with underlying plum aromas and flavors. A very fresh palate with great depth and detail. Drink or hold." (2/2018)


Decanter: 91pts

"I like this for its bright fruit, sense of forward motion and vivacity. There's not huge depth, but quality is good and it remains upbeat with notes of cedar and red berries. Plenty of medium term drinking pleasure here. (JA)" (11/2017)


Tasting Notes:

D The wine is bright and limpid. The robe is deep garnet and luminous. The nose
is neat and straight. Before stirring, cherry and cedar. After stirring, come the black pepper aromas, fresh roses, lightly mineral. The attack is frank and supple. The mouth is immediately aromatic in the gray tobacco register, mineral and wooded touch barely vanilled. The fine tannic frame, satin is the heart of a smooth volume. The retro-olfaction is very long, with cherry and mint.
