Nicely mature, with a very appetising sweet brambly/hedgerow fruit aromas and a mellow medium-bodied feel with a classic balancing dryness. Lovely now. Bravo to Cornishman Mark Hellyar!

Modern and ripe fruit, quite light and simple on the palate but the grip adds some interest, making this especially food-worthy.

Mark Hellyar is a surf-loving Cornishman who bought a rundown estate in an unfashionable part of Bordeaux. His wines are as good as the story and the 06 is drinking wonderfully; dark berries and smoke are underpinned by a vein of tannin. This is a modern claret, ideal for traditional roast beef.
Hamish Anderson, The Telegraph (May 2013)
The 2006 is nicely meaty and supple and has perfumy, sweet fruit, subtly toasty oak and a convincing, earthy-mineral undertow. It’s half Merlot and 25% each Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. .... All in all, a very good, modern but authentic Bordeaux.
