2016 ()

quite a dark red; smoke-charcoal airs combine with prune fruit, sweetness, with a little salting on the bouquet. This is still rather closed on the palate, carries 2016 ripeness, much packing, sustains fully. There is a summery flavour of dates on the aftertaste; the juice is concentrated, peeks out, is sturdy, and rather traditional in style. Decant it. 14.5°. From 2022-23. 2036-38 Feb 2020
