Very soft and sweet smelling with figgy fruit over a bed of slate, gains lovely spice notes that recall Chinese 5-spice with a strong star anise element and an effusive lanoline note. With air there emerges am iodine element that turns rather seaweedy with time. Resolved and relaxed in the mouth yet with great depth of flavor. The fruit is deep and earthy with nuanced nut, vanilla, rose petal, red cherry and oystershell notes. The mid-palate is bright and layered with notes of mineral and fresh nut meat adding complexity. This really gains in the glass opening to reveal a fleshy, mouth filing personality that has deeply mineral and salince, like licking limestone. Lemon custard lingers on the long finihs. Excellent freshness, complexity and depth. Brilliant bottle 95pts
