Second bottle. This is better. Lifted lemony fruit and a thrilling electric spine, underpinned by hefty floral, saline and puckery ripe fruit. Excellent

Darker than expected. Full and a bit tangy. Advanced in what I’d expect. This bottle needs drinking but clearly profound juice.

This is the back up bottle. Soaring lemon fruit with slate and limestone and bright floral notes. Searing and lifted light fruit with real depth and linear body. Great structure. Glorious, and a long time ahead

Corked-but you can taste through it. Would have been lovely.

A touch of ox but still pretty solid.
