dark red robe. This has an open, broad and copious nose, a sweet infill of red fruits, a hint of reduction. It centres on a plump aroma of raspberry liqueur fruit. The palate is charged up from the start, attacks with a gust of southern power and potential headiness. The flavour rests on griottes, soaked red cherries. The tannins are pretty ripe. The balance is at slight threat from its power, I find, and the sign-off is a bit dry from the vintage drought. From 2020. 2028-30 Oct 2017

full robe; herbal-dark aroma. Palate is well assembled, fruit is red, has steady expression, breathes some power as it goes – a touch heady, is over 15°. Full finish. From mid-2012. 2019-21 April 2011
