Wine of the night! Magnum of 2011 already wonderful to enjoy and at the same time ready to lay down for a couple of decades!

Quite deep and complex on the nose giving only a fraction away. Quite deep dark fruits , anise . In the mouth, lots of ripe black fruits , velvety but grippy tannins. Always the sign of a great wine is the ability to change in the glass , this has that in spades . Now becoming more floral , violets, rose . More feminine. Hugely long on the finish , with a wonderful balance of acidity , and a saline touch. Drinkable now , enjoyable , however really merits keeping to improve further a few more years. A great wine .

This was a later in the evening pop and pour decision. I was shocked how ready and generous it was. An excellent example and reminder that sometimes we overthink things a bit. This will certainly cellar well, but showed beautifully right now.

The nose on this is pure, ripe & focused. Bursting cherry aromatics with a delineated smoky accent. Absolutely stunning palate with a shockingly accessible sense of balance in such an early stage of development. Structured, yet completely fresh & bright. That light smokiness from the nose follows on the back of the palate. This will cellar beautifully, but will also be very hard to leave alone in the near term.
