even, quite dark red robe; the red fruit on the nose is tightly bound, is deep enough and has a mineral clarity within, a little raspberry. The palate proceeds with a good, even and compact texture – the fruit opens up a little at the end. I like its cohesion and fruit – it is springy and wide. Good length. Good wine, with character. 2022-23 Jan 2008

quite a robust dark red robe; the nose reflects schist origins – it is clear-cut, deep, has well-set red fruit, a little pistachio. The palate kicks off with red fruits, with grip that goes beyond the early richness – it travels on through the palate with some poise. It ends a little fruit-free – snappy red fruit with a dominance of minerality. 2013-14 Jan 2008
