Wow! Attractive plums, hazelnuts, smoked meat and terra cotta. Full body and round, silky tannins. Juicy undertones. Delicious finish. Love the texture and tension to this one.
The Real Review
An alluring nose of cloves and bunch-spice, charcuterie and white pepper, plum sauce and tapenade. Fragrant and complex. Time in the glass allows fresher plums and cinnamon to emerge. It also allows tannins the time to jut. This is showing early signs of development. Cruising into the next chapter.
97/100 punten, Special Value
Hand-picked and sorted, open-fermented as whole berries and whole bunches, matured for 14 months in used French puncheons, then a further 14 months in bottle. The wine is still in its infancy, black fruits, spice, pepper and licorice in a Catherine wheel of flavours. It's a special wine that will have a very long life as the tannins are fully tamed.
