Tasting notes


Dating back to the mid-17th century, this is an estate with a staggering history and an admirable modern-day reputation. A precocious wine with clear potential, it's a miasma of wild strawberry, raspberry and red cherries, with a savoury facet throughout. Alc: 14%. (17 points) £15.30
