The 2011 Columella is more reticent on the nose when compared directly against the 2010: straight-laced and linear with subtle tertiary notes that unfurl with aeration. This seems more masculine than the previous vintage. The palate is vibrant and poised on the entry with fresh crisp tannins effervescent citrus fresh red and black fruit a dash of white and black pepper and a beautifully poised finish. Once those aromatics awaken with time this will be a stunning Columella. Drink 2015-2025. Eb

Rich, ripe and remarkably stylish, this lets layers of plum sauce, steeped blackberry and black currant pâte de fruit unfurl, while notes of ganache, espresso and graphite provide spine and direction on the finish, with a lovely anise echo. Drink now through 2020.
