Heavily green & acidic on the first night, but come the third this wine has really opened up nicely. Pleasantly surprised and wished a) I’d decanted it for a few hours after opening, and b) that I had more left in the bottle!

Yes, I’d buy this again (and give it six hours open before drinking).

Brutal acidity, mostly tamed by duck confit. Purple fruit.

Left to open up for an hour, but still fairly green. Not my favourite.
