2015 ()

pale pink robe. The nose is subdued, as if it has just been bottled. There is a light air of strawberry. The palate gives a red cherry flavour, has a supple stretch before quiet grip on the finish. Tidy, if a little plain, and it drifts as it ends. 13.5°. €8.35 at the cellars. To mid-2017  Feb 2016

pink robe. Facile, rather contrived air led by red fruit jam, white strawberries – there is a glisten about it. The palate gives a tidy package of red jelly, floral redcurrant with white peach notes, and a thyme, smoke note. Good length. A bit obvious. The palate beats the nose. 13°. To 2015  Oct 2013


pale pink. Measured but harmonious nose, airs of fine redcurrant and cherry fruit. There is forward acidity in the palate; the fruit glances rather than looks out. The finale is modest, with some fade there. The fruit and depth aren’t convincing. 13°. Oct 2012
