Decanted 1hr before trying. Full, bright ruby. Red cherry and raspberry nose. Still quite tightly defined, crisp fruit, mineral, initially quite linear, opening up a little through the evening. Starting to show a little more frgrance. It is unfurling slightly, but needs longer. Bright. Just about ****
Decanted about an hour ahead of drinking to disipate the CO2 spritz. Slightly less right than previous bottle but still closed compared with my original taste of this three years ago. Still pure/transparent, mineral, light red fruit, quite tight but good length. ***1/2
Considerably tighter and more surly than a previous bottle a coupple of years ago, this seems to have gone in to its shell. Lovely purity/transparency, very mineral, light red fruit, but very tight and dominated by the acidity and fine tannins. Not giving much today, fingers crossed for the future. **1/2(*)
