“This is a superlative, tightly furled Bordeaux blend of pedigree, age-worthiness and a sapid quiver of blackcurrant to herbal notes: crushed, dried and strewn about the palate, all tightly guarded by gravelly tannins and juicy natural acidity. The oak handling, too, smacks of expertise: a fine-grained and well trained hedge, embellishing the savoury air of the style rather than overwhelming it…. an imperious, beautiful wine with a long, long life ahead.” 99 Points & Special Value Star, James Halliday. As well as James Halliday’s Top 100 for 2017.
