    May 14, 2022 - Good intensity on the entry, with delicious and slightly spicy plums and blackberries, before the mid palate adds some tertiary elements of forest floor, tobacco, ink and slate. Perhaps very slightly leaner than I would have liked on the mid palate as far as fruit goes, which makes it tend slightly towards tertiary/mineral side, but it’s still a delicious wine, and puts on a bit more weight again into the medium length finish with blackberries, plums tobacco, slate and delicate spices lingering. Clearly a quality wine, with perhaps the vintage showing through in the slightly more savoury/mineral/tertiary mid palate. Ready to drink with at least two hours decant.

    March 5, 2022 - Needed air even after a 2h decant. Early in its drinking window. Full bodied and quite classic.

    February 24, 2022 - Tasted blind alongside other four other Bordeaux blends. Floral, menthol, plum and polished mahogany. The palate has soft plummy fruit and spicy notes too. Plenty of weight and power. Classy

    December 12, 2021 - Deep plummy aromas, black cherry and damson. The palate has lots of fruit with all those damson, plum and black cherry fruits bursting through with tons of spice and black pepper which makes the palate tingle. Excellent
