(2022) A nice pale colour and a gorgeous nose, so aromatic, suffused with coffee, peppery spice and rose-hip over cherry-ripe red fruit. On the palate it has a surge of sweet, succulent ripeness, quite mouth-filling and very juicy, then a tightly-focused phallanx of plum-skin acidity and creamy tannin extends the finish beautifully.
(2017) Really attractive spices and florals, light and fleet of foot, cherry and briar and lovely palate, cool and creamy with really fine, fruity cherry character with enough briar and a touch of coffee.
(2017) A nice briary character, a high, incense and smoke character, with real floral lift. The palate has crunch and freshness, with a racy acidity and fine balance. UK stockist and price quoted at time of review is for the 2013 vintage
(2017) Very soft, elegant and approachable, light bodied and terribly pretty, the sweetness of the fruit, a touch of rosy red apple, and the framework yielding and elegant. A little hint of briary, damp undergrowth to add interest.
