James Suckling 100
This is amazing. The vibrancy and energy in this wine is stunning. The complexity of aromas are breathtaking with flowers, blackcurrants, raspberries and peaches. Full-bodied, yet ever so refined and polished with impeccable texture and beauty. The length is marvelous. This is a testimony to balance, harmony and transparency in a great red.

Deep crimson although I can see the bottom of the glass! Freshness with ripe-but-not-sweet fruit and some hint of stoniness on the quite strongly aromatic nose. Then it is sweeter on the palate than it had seemed on the nose. Intense cassis, unsweetened chocolate, and then a fresh finish with a nice, dry mineral finish. Really quite appetising. Beautifully polished tannins which, amazingly, make the wine delicious to drink already. The undertow and clean peacock's tail finish is impressive. Despite its current approachability, on the basis of this vertical tasting I forecast a pretty impressively long life.
