shiny red robe. Reductive, meaty air, prune fruit, a rather wild bouquet. The palate gives gummy pastille fruit, some coating of texture. It drifts on the finish. There is a young vines feel to this, the vintage finding them out. The fruit is quite bright overall. 12.5°. To 2018  GB £82 12b i/b H2Vin www.H2Vin.co.uk orders@H2Vin.co.uk  Nov 2015

pale red. The nose shows a lot of reduction, that pong, so decant this: there is a red fruit centre to it. The palate is light, not wholly convincing vis-à-vis its depth. There are jammy notes at the end, the aftertaste perfumed. A bit disjointed. 12.5°. Lacks real attention, gives the feel of a “dine and dash” wine. £78 12 b in bond H2Vin GB www.h2vin.co.uk To 2018 Nov 2014
