Pretty red aromas. Like the 2009 the flavours are very mineral, tannin starts as merely a background impression, though comes to the fore in the mid-palate, it seems only as part of a general crescendo of flavour leaching from every nook and cranny of your mouth. Excellent!
November bottling. A rounder, softer and redder nose than the previous wines – shows good density. Fresh acidity, plenty of tannin showing towards the finish – with just a hint of astringency. This is more seriously structured but it has fine fruit to compliment. Very good – but leave most of your bottles in the cellar.
