2016 ()

(large barrel/casks, bottling March 2018) full red robe. This has an attractive nose thanks to its variety of prompts, raspberry fruit with some brio, musky flowers, dried herbs, oregano. The palate rolls along a savoury path, with appealing juiciness that sustains well into a spherical, lip smacking close. It has a very good centre of tempting fruit, and will please in a sunny, open way. It’s curvy and attractive, trumpets the qualities of the Grenache very well, is close to full-on STGT. It has a Burgundian finesse at its heart. 14.5°. From late 2019. 2034-36 Oct 2017

2015

quite a full red colour. The nose has a raspberry fruit aroma, is wide and sustained, if not yet varied. The palate bears red berry fruits with a suave gras, gives a build in intensity towards the finish. There is a little coolness on the close, where the tannins have a powdery grain. This has quiet style, and will drink well from 2020. 2031-33 Sept 2016
