Tasting Notes

Elegant and classy with great length, the 2012 has an expansive bouquet of crushed blackberries and dark cherries which opens to reveal complex notes of delicate spices and wild herbs which combine beautifully. Gorgeously refined and textured on the palate with lovely weight of dark berry fruits balanced by a racy mineral quality and an elegant freshness, this harmonious and multi-layered wine will develop in length and complexity over thirty years or more. Drink from 2018?2040.

Reviews & Scores
