Multi-dimensional nose, offering keen fruits, a mineral note and smoky oak. Luscious, alluring, with red berry fruits, refreshing acidity and balance. Drink from 2012.
Fine concentrated colour and lovely cassis fruit with purity and elegance, plus a dimension of ripeness and depth, lots of charm as well as length. Drink 2010-25. (17.5 points)
