Ripe cassis, hint of plum skins. Solid, well made, good integration of oak. Tannins ripe and not at all intrusive. Quite long, fine, lovely. Drink 2012/13-18.
Full black red, concentrated nose of blackcurrants overlaid with violets, all smoothness and lift over very fine expression of fruit, superb length, marvellous vineyard expression, perfect harmony, an exquisite wine. Drink 2012-50. (19.5 points)
