Tasted single blind at FINE magazine’s vertical in Dusseldorf. This has a precocious bouquet with blackberry, cassis, and blueberry, very opulent but still very well defined. There is a confidence, a sense of brio on this nose. The palate is very well defined on the entry with a touch of mint and vanilla pod interlacing the very pure dark berry fruits. There is still a touch of new oak to be subsumed, but this has succinct balance and purity. Top drawer: this is just superb for the vintage. Tasted February 2011.

‘Extremely deep crimson. Liquorice and other spices on the nose. Wonderfully exotic without being over the top. Great life here with a nice little undertow of quite severe oak to keep it from flab. Exciting, lively but not too sweet. Just in balance. Tar and liquorice. Interesting and really lively! -’ 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson
