Godelia, Barrel-aged 2009
Decanter average score:
17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 18 Sarah Jane Evans MW 17.5 Mike Ritchie MW 17
Subtle blend of typically meaty aromas with cigar box and redcurrant fruit. Lovely structure, sound and open, with fresh tannins and low but enjoyable acidity. Still a core of black fruit evident on the palate and sings its origin.
