    December 16, 2014 - Copper with a touch of amber. Quite a rich nose, initially with a bit of Bual-like burnt sugar richness and a sense of sweetness. A little lighter and drier on the palate whilst retaining its density with good mid-palate complexity. Finishes well. ****

    March 25, 2013 - Fine wine tasting with Xavier Rousset (28-50 Fetter Lane, London): Lots of caramel and burnt sugar on the nose, strangely fresh and dry with a slightly green and unusual element on the palate

    October 31, 2012 - Lunch with Pjaines (28-50, Marylebone, London): I enjoyed this at the end of our meal, but thought it was good without being anything special. The nose had a strange whiff of penicillin to it, which otherwise distracted from pleasant aromas of honeyed figs and raisins seasoned with a nice touch of spice. I liked the palate rather more. Fresh and lively as every good Madeira should be, it had yummy flavours of dried figs flecked with earth and cocoa, leading into a nicely balanced finish woven with a good bit of mineral and spice. Very pleasant, but just a touch on the simple side for me.
