Ageing: in French oak barrels of 225L for 12 months. Cellar for up to 10 years for real enjoyment

brilliant deep dark colour, with an intense fruit bouquet reminding wild blackcurrants and pine leaves, with vanilla and chocolate notes given by the oak. On the palate it is very generous with the astringence characteristic of its youth, foretelling a remarkable ageing due to its great balance. Come back to this wine three days later and it's still fantastic!

Great with all hearty fare like beef, lamb and duck.
