Medium colour. This has quite full, sweet fruit; some strawberry and very decent acidity. Lingers quite well this – a good start – but the price is a little high.

The fruit here is very pretty and red, dovetailed with high-toned notes. In the mouth this brings a fuller impression with velvet tanning padding out the palate. This finishes very well but balances by being much narrower in the mid-palate.

I think I can re-use this bottle for weight-training – even after it is drained! Medium, medium-plus colour. There’s a faintly roasted red fruit note but overall the nose is rather fine. Across your tongue this is soft and reasonably silky with good depth of flavour. Very good length but overall I think it needs to be more engaging – this is the vintage vernacular, rather than the domaine.
