  • Short decant (30 minutes) prior to drinking. Open for business. Tannins are sweet and resolved. Mostly tobacco, tea, sous bois, along with Graves typicity. Not thinned out, and a bit heftier than I expected. Good show for classically styled claret.

  • Interesting leathery, herbal, minty raspberries, loganberries and spice aromas. Medium bodied quite compact and structured four square herbal palate with decent concentration. Good length. Idiosyncratic.

  • My last and the best of my three noted bottles.
    Force majeure meant this had a 4 hour decant, but despite this being completely against my early thoughts it showed very well.
    Hints of age, slightest bricking, dense aroma of ripe plum, hint of truffle and charred oak. Full rounded plum in mouth, dash of tar integrated tannins and long dry finish. Perfect partner for our roast sirloin of beef.
    Excellent last bottle. Drink up over the next year or two for maximum enjoyment.

  • My previous note applies but I wonder whether this wine would show more concentration with a minimal decant rather than the 90min-2hr ones of my noted bottles.
    The test glass on initial decant seemed much more complex than at the time of consumption. Will decant and pour my final bottle and report back. I felt that the wine opened at an excellent 91+ but drank at a merely v good 89.
