Tasting notes

Savoury nose, a bit gamey and lacks some freshness. Rich, with rather furry tannins, concentrated, assertive and a bit extracted and effortful. Quite good length but there's some astringency on the finish

81 / 100 14.5 / 20

Earthy wet soil and rock nose, classic St Estephe style, pencil graphite and concentrated blackcurrant. Earthy full and rustic palate, big tannins and huge mouthfeel. Good.

Quite rich, earthy autumnal fruit nose, with a nice lifted, leafy fragrance, good fruit on the palate, but the leafiness remains and is less positive here, turning to a greenness on the finish. quite leathery and robust, lacks a little freshness.
