Deep garnet to dusty ruby. Briary red fruit, some sous-bois starting to show. Bright and focused with good acidity and a mineral core surrounded bu softer red fruit. Developing well. Long and positive and moreish. Bare ****
JadotFest 2013 (Harwood Arms, London): Nicely fragrant nose. Red fruit and a little sous bois with a touch of woodsmoke. Quite minerally through the mid-palate. Nicely defined. Long. Opens up and shows a nice texture around the minerally core. Good focus and line. ***1/2 maybe even ****
Best (and last) of the lot. Very light body and crystal clear. Nothing on the nose for about 30 minutes and then the fruit and perfume begins. Nose developed throughout the next three hours until it was really quite substantial and complex. In the mouth, bright cherry and some strawb. to begin but once it opened out the savoury, meatier flavours came to the fore. A light wine but one with much pleasure in its development.
