There is wine and then there is WINE. Sheer perfection just like the 2009, the 2001, the ... 1921 and yes the 2015. Just bow and be grateful. And yes forget you got some for the next 15 years. Tremendous.

Wine of the night and the best 96 I have ever had. Amazing purity. Lichee, orange zest, apricot, minerals all turned up to 10. Perfect integration and concentration.

This is a perfect and stunning wine. Pineapple and lychee and exotic fruits, balance and great acidity. Best expression since the 2001. This is “it”. Hurry up to taste when you still can before it becomes way too expensive.

I thought it might be a little dark but this is nicely resolved and on the young side. Lots of unctuous apricot and creme brûlée, good acidity, Exemplary stuff

Mid to bright gold in colour. A note of paraffin Notes of Orange marmalade, toast, apricot, mangoes and almonds. Intensity off the charts. How can you get this much flavour into a wine. A fitting finish to a marvellous dinner. Hats off to the Downs Club - Mark Kennedy the chef, and Peter Barbe the Sommelier. May there be many more such dinners, also Ramon the importer who spoke about each wine with great knowledge.
