Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 18.5 Yohann Jousselin MS 18.5 David Motion 17.5
Spiced bramble jam on the nose with touches of earth, chocolate and tobacco. Offering great complexity, it’s rich, opulent, powerful, a bit tarry, with rugged mountain fruit, chewy tannins and a certain earthiness. Terrific weight of fruit; will go the distance.
