destemmed, 2 week open steel vat fermentation, daily pumping overs and cap punching, aged 100% new 300-litre French oak casks 30 months, unfined, unfiltered

2005

quite bright, deep red, sub-purple nose. Upright, clear nose that has plenty of potential, shows some Cote-Rôtie , smoky graphite style touches. This is tasty! Has a fine, interesting structure – this has a clear tinkle of clear black fruit with good oaking to add a shimmer of tar. It proceeds carefully. It drinks now, but that is not doing it justice, nor letting its potential declare. Good life in this. From mid-late 2011 for more variety. 14.5°. 2023-26 Oct 2009 A$48 2002 available at £20.70 Cellar Link, GB
