An intense nose that seems to offers a different character on every visit; black cherry, kirsch soaked vanilla, truffle and cedar. There’s a richness to the palate that is pinned perfectly by refined tannins leading to an evolved and magnificent finish. This is big, juicy and balanced claret that 2005 is so famous for.
