Tasting Notes

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This is very youthful and limpid in colour and sports a very modern nose: plush, luscious dark red fruits such as crushed strawberry, redcurrant and a touch of cranberry, creamy new oak. Not overbearing, this is a lovely, almost ravishing bouquet. The palate is full-bodied with a creamy, quite oaky entry, slightly lower acidity than its peers and showing less secondary characteristics. Rounded and creamy towards the plum and cranberry finish, smooth and harmonious, this is what you might describe as a 'sexy Saint Emilion'. However, it needs to develop another dimension and more character. Speaks more of the winemaking than the terroir at the moment but give it time. Tasted March 2011.

Score: 95
