A delicious, well-structured Bordeaux, with plenty of ripe fruit, beautiful berry, green tobacco and cherry character. Full-bodied, adding velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish.
...with its soft, voluptuous texture, big, spicy, cedary nose, sweet, expansive fruit, medium body, and excellent richness and purity. The wine reveals no amber at the edge, but it tastes surprisingly evolved and already delicious...
...Lots of impact and mouthfeel even if not that much subtle development. A bit fossilised rather than developed but no-one would feel short changed by this. Tannins are not very ripe. But there is some silkiness.
