In many ways “simple”, yet should I have the possibility to down a bottle on a daily basis, I’d be pretty satisfied. Just ticks all the right boxes; great fruit, purity, restraint, complete dryness, acidity, tannic grip, minerality, saltiness. One to get by the case. Yeah right; you get to drink Burgundy too. — 8 days ago
A true candidate for proprietor Bradley Brown’s best generic PN to date. Bursting with ripe strawberries and loamy mineral scents, this medium bodied offering show a stemmy tannic grip and loads of juicy freshness. This is exactly what many US producers are aiming for, but few delivers. — 22 days ago
Great, great wine. Youthful and severe tannins provide grip and balance to its highly concentrated dark, plummy fruit. Loads of spice, almost peppery and additions of dark chocolate and licorice. Toasty oak frame the lengthy finale where fruit, minerals and youthfulness are key words. Best from 2022. — 22 days ago
Off the charts. In so many ways. It’s rare to explore such densely packed fruit in wine, and when you do, it’s usually associated with jammy notes and way too much oak. This is this the opposite. Freshness and pronounced minerality lead the dark fruit flavours forward while serious tannins wrap things up, supported by great, interwoven acidity and framed by licorice tainted oak treatment. Best from 2022, but drinks amazing already given 4-5 hours of air. — 8 days ago
I like this estate. Generally they offer me purity of fruit and grainy tannins, fresh acidity and well judged oak treatment. This vintage lack som mid palate weight and tannins have some greenness to them, so doubtless the vintage was tricky here as well. A very good effort though, to drink over the next 5-8 years. Elegant and well balanced. — 22 days ago
