(2020) Paul says the Taransud barrels bring out the aromatics in this wine. Quite a resinous, balsamic quality from the oak at first, lots of vanilla and also game and bloody notes. On the palate quite plummy but with a cherry freshness, taut, quite dominant tannins but good balance and length.
(2017) The blend contains 77% Chardonnay, which is higher than usual. Lovely struck match complex sulphides on the nose, a little toffee, and the orchard fruits have delicious juiciness and length, fine, long, tapering acids in a lovely wine. The sweet fruit so nicely balanced against the creamy acidity. Note that online retailer Justincases is offering a six pack of this for £139.50 inc VAT at time of writing: £23.95 per bottle.
