Lovely Medoc cigar-box and leather nose; garrigue, mocha, and liquorice on the palate; persistent controlled fruit and decent acidity; nice mineral line and structure; slightly hot, moderately long finish; everything pretty much in balance. A thoroughbred punching its weight - very enjoyable.
Drank with Neil. Floral nose, lemon and lime on the palate, some clover honey notes, a wonderful line of acidity. Most of all, unbelievably fresh for a twelve-year-old, with a long, rich finish, suggesting a long life ahead.
