(bottling May 2012) very clear robe, bright as well. Has a nutty air, shows black berry fruits, licorice and a nice just out of the vat spritely style. A wine suited to the Paris market – it holds pop-up fruit, with some sweetness, gets and goes. Its blackberry fruit is well founded, the length good. w.o.w. wine. “It has a fresh succulence” Nick Thompson. To 2015 Feb 2012

quite dark red; rather sleek black fruit aroma that has nice life in it, is inky from its Syrah. The palate displays bosky black fruits on the attack which sets off well. Takes on a firm texture. This does well, has good, clean fruit. 14°. To 2014-15 Feb 2012
