Rich and powerful on the nose this is immediately attractive with notes of plum, spice and grape pomace jam soaring from the glass. Notes of blue fruits, violets, leather and clay add admirable complexity. A bit tight on entry, this slowly unfolds with hints of plum skins and bitter cherry supported by ripe tannins. the texture is like cashmere, showing perfect integration and stunning freshness to the fruit. With some air this turns a bit spicy and attractively rich with a long, finely fruited finish. Still youthful but so fresh and already quite supple. 96pts

This bottle started out with a touch of jammy raspberry on the nose and smelled very taut and sinewy with slowly growing notes of berry fruits, iron, turmeric, fenugreek and a touch of green anise seed. In the mouth this was zesty, precise and incredibly well balanced. A bit closed and decidedly youthful this bottle none-the-less thrilled with it’s balance and vibrancy. It opened somewhat over the course of the evening revealing a nice floral tone with hints of rosehips and dried raspberry fruit. The finish is long with a lovely stony minerality and echoes of used pipe and soil. This is going to be a fantastic bottle when it’s mature. 2010-2030 96pts and going to improve!

paler and brassier than the preceding 3 wines this seems quite evolved on the nose with lots of floral highlights over a core of strawberry fruit with notes of tar, sand and prosciutto adding depth. Reticent and taut in the mouth with fruit tones floating above the palate this is mysterious with relatively light weight though very finely balanced. Brisk and with finesse, this offers stern yet not abbrasive tannins with really herby, rhubarby fruit that leads to a spicy finish that hints at curry tones. After 3 hours this has just blossomed with a nose full of salted capers, truffles, caraway seed, pressed flowers, and ripe fruit. The palate has really filled in and maintains nice tension with tons of ripe tannins and bright acidity that are gorgeously integrated. Very youthful , long and complete this is my WOTN. 2008-2025
