Higher toned. More an undertow of red fruit aromas than precise berries, but slowly it takes on more focus – very interesting. Sweetness, concentration, soft but not too plush. The tannin is well covered and then the flavours bursts through. this is lovely.

Aromatic delicatesse – it’s a beauty! Silkier still. It’s not fat, but the intensity build and builds – I’m smitten, bravo!

Relatively open and fine – this reminds me of the precision of 2008s – there is also a hint of earth. Full and round, just enough flavour though it’s very tight. Plenty of structure – built like a cathedral!

A hint of almond and floral notes. More energy, less fat – lovely flavour. This is more mineral and it’s very pretty indeed.

Wide, very precise and pretty – lovely aromas. Very well balanced; there is lots of depth to go with the well covered acidity. This is really super.

Magnum. Deep, dark aromas with a suggestion of mushroom – eventually precise, individual berries! Very, very young, but the mid-palate punch is well matched to the structure. Very satisfying from the mid-palate into the finish. Really a long-term wine…

The nose is a little spicy over an understatedly savoury depth. More wood tannin (this will soften), very good balance and the first wine that shows an additional burst of complexity as move into the finish.

The aromatics are a little narrower than the preceding wines, but in the mouth it’s full, tannic, showing super acidity and real extension of the fruit before slowly dying in the finish. Clean and quite impressive.

The aromas are a little tight, but at it’s centre is a super core of red/black fruit. Wide, with velvety tannin and excellent acidity. The fruit chases the acidity into the finish while the tannin clings to the inside of your mouth. This will require some cellar time but has all the components to be a wonderful bottle down the line…
