A bit candied, a bit cola, sort of flat and indistinct, fruity in a dry way, nice mid-palate feel. Nice, wiry, almost herbal red strawberry fruit on mid-palate, a bit simple but refreshing. (84-85pts)

Sweet, powerful, dried cherry fruit, very aromatic, chalk, a bit of Fruit Roll-Up, deep pure rich fruit. Powerful but not weighty, good acids, nice crisp tannins, nice fresh spice in the mouth, nice mineral cut. Very pure, very soil-driven, lively on the palate with good follow-through, lovely crisp tannins, a bit short. (92-94pts)

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>Chiara captures the expression of this sun-drenched sandy-marne site perfectly: molten tannins amid a deep sea of dark plum, choc and even blueberry notes. <br/> <br/>It's so finely woven, so pulpy and tasty, yet with an undercarriage to take it forward. Modern yes, rotos and barrique, but beautifully pure too; in fact you may come across some harmless anthocynanins/grape sediment as the wines are not fined or filtered. <br/><strong>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)</strong>
