Colour: Dark rich inky in colour, with some brickyness developing around the rim of the glass. Nose: Mint, Eucalyptus, blueberries and some pencilly wood charcter quite pronounced . As the wine opened up I noticed some confectionary aromas vanilla and strawberry. Mouth: dark cherry, casis, blackberry flavours. Very fine tanin (Not Chunky). great length. Some pleasant earthy charters coming through on the finish. The wine is still vibrant and could happily sit for another 5 years.

This is a great Bordeaux showing intense, smoky, mineral-laced blackcurrant fruit on the nose, with real depth of aroma. The palate is rich, tannic and full of concentration of primary fruits. There's great potential here for the cellar.
