Maturation occurs in 100% new French oak for 18 months which contributes to a wonderful nose of cherry, vanilla, toasted spices, dark chocolate and tobacco. The palate is beautifully built combining intensity, structure and rich fruit. After aeration this vintages drinks well, but there’s sufficient quality to govern a decade of further cellaring. Astute winemaking is evident, as ripeness and purity of fruit gives way to a dusty almost old world finish.
