    March 25, 2022 - First bottle corked. 2nd bottle ok but too much cedar flavors.

  • Burgundynick Likes this wine: 90 points

    December 30, 2021 - Black cherries, a little balsamic vinegar, some blackberry too. A little smoke, oak spice and dried herbs. Palate, although a little young, has more of the same, that gorgeous black cherry and lovely acidity is delicious. It has some depth and complexity too. This has 10 years ahead of it and will only improve. What a cracker. Well worth seeking out to #giveanewwineago #burgundynick and only £35.99 @majesticwine and thy have some in @majesticwineharrogate stunning value for a #brunello 90 points

    November 26, 2021 - From a tenth (demi). Deep blood red with an amber rim, with high optical density and medium specular reflectivity (no surface scattering here). The nose is quite big, with intense aromatic compounds (light tar) lifting up cherry rolled in tobacco, blueberry, and even peppermint, along with herbal spice and sous bois. Very interesting depth on the nose, very enjoyable and enticing.

    On the palate, a rich full body with density and concentration shows, with medium acidity and soft, ripe tannins up front, with some fine grip on the back end. Not quite fully integrated, but not out of balance here, it gives things a spine. Overall, the texture is plush and sappy, with just enough tension around the edges to give a youthful and playful profile. Pretty dynamic in a good way.

    Flavours of dark fruits on the attack (cherry, plum, and soft blueberries) that is supported by a floral note and plenty of savoury character going on. Sort of like smoked fruits, but freshened by some spices and roses. the midpalate sees tobacco and spices kick in, with an edgy note of cured leather and crushed leaves and brush. Maintains a high intensity as well. The finish shows a flourish of cherry and spice, with perhaps a twist of green olive and balsamic. Length is very nice, quite lengthy and interesting. Overall intensity is high and complexity is there as well. Lots of flavour evolution here, and just pondering it will bring up more flavours here, giving a great bottle to have fun experiencing.

    This is very enjoyable, well made, and reasonably priced BdM. Drinking like a young and flashy pop star at the moment, there is tons to like. Dynamic tension and layers of flavours that ever-change and develop is just a pure pleasure to drink. Not a restrained and elegant wine for the most part, this is an all-out powerful take on things, with flair and an almost calm arrogance. Sometimes that's charming and sometimes that's annoying. Still, well balanced and well made, and likely to mellow out in the cellar. Fun, but definitely leans into flamboyancy, so approach in the right mind set!
