"Great nose here: sensual and evocative dark fruits. Fruits holding well on the palate too, with a gratifying note of dark chocolate. Excellent tannins which shape and structure the palate. Terrific drive of fruit here: dark berry drama and thrill.(Close to a Right Bank Bordeaux nose while the flavours are half-way between Right Bank Bordeaux and Loire.)"
- As recommended by Andrew Jefford, award-winning wine writer and columnist, during a private tasting in July 2022.
