  • 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.

  • Decanted for 90 minutes.
    Good even colour not particularly showing age, aroma of cooked plums and dark fruits with a hint of vegetal background.
    Good race in the mouth, very juicy dark fruit flavours with soft mature tannins all delivered with subtlety rather than the robustness that one more normally expects from this vintage. Medium length.
    Elegant and fully mature but with at least another 2-3 years left in it. Very enjoyable if not quite to 90+ profundity.

  • Very herbal and earthy on the nose and quite light and weedy with cool, earthy flavours on the palate. Past its best.
