Great wine that needed about an hour and a half to fully develop in the glass. Rich nose at first of raspberry and bacon fat, with smokey notes. All of which with time gave way to soft layered spices. Great wine. 4/5 [NR]
weird bottle- night one was borderline overripe, especially on the nose- lots of power- seems to need a lot of time to calm down. after a night vacu-vined in the fridge and night 2 it had completely fallen apart- weird.
very rich nose
Very nice nose, chocolate, herbes de provence and liquorice. Superb taste with ripe berries and very good balanced tannins.
