(bottling March 2015) deep, bright purple colour. Has a rather tired, oxidative nose, an air of jammy fruit. The attack is sweet, then gives tired, drying fruit on the palate. The freshness is there so either a bad sample or maturity has been pushed a little too hard. 14.5°. €20.50. Try from spring 2016. 2023-24 JL Dec 2014
