Medium-pale colour. Gorgeous soft and ripe red fruits. Some fat, wide and nicely complex. This has energy without any acid emphasis. Mineral flavours in the finish. Medium concentration and elegant. What a super starting point.

Medium, medium-pale cherry-red colour. The aromatics are wide, perhaps a little high-toned and alcoholic but over a denser slightly savoury fruit core. A little dissolved gas on the palate, good red fruits and young tannin – accentuated by the gas. There’s a nice burst of interest on the mid-palate and there’s good, if slightly prickly, acidity (gas again). This needs a year in the cellar, and the performance will be far better than described above if you decant an hour before serving. Excellent value wine in an elegant package.

Wide, high-toned aromatics that quickly tighten in the glass, perhaps a trace of caramel. The palate shows a little more tannin than the 07’s, but there is the depth of concentration to match and a super dimension of fruit too. Slightly lower acidity also than the 07’s but still mouth-watering, lingering flavours. This is excellent
