This didn't show well for the first couple of hours. It was very disjointed. However, like the 2012 bottles I've recently drunk, the elements started to integrate nicely and this ended up being a great bottle. Even better the second day. Once it had hit its stride, there were jubey red berries, cherry pit, orange zest, herbs and some earthy notes. As others have noted, this may not be the most complex or concentrated wine, but it's very tasty. Slow ox for a couple of hours before drinking!
Beautiful, elegant wine. Tart raspberry and cranberry fruit, complicated by minerals, flowers and a light vein of earth. Airy, lacy and bright on the palate. Not for everyone (my wife did not like), as it is a very light-bodied and high toned wine.
almost undrinkable the first hour, so far out of balance. fine later. the next evening, its usual brilliant sappy self. I think this is at a stage where it really needs a serious decanting. don't be afraid of giving it 3 or 4 hrs of air, and serve it with a slight chill.
Bright ruby. Red berry fruit rhubarb and a bit of pepper. Very linear and focused on the palate with some bitter red fruit and darker sweet notes at the end. My first experience with this wine in any vintage. I do not think I found it quite as enthralling as other tasters have. I have a few left and look forward to another go with it.
