Whole-bunchy, black cherry and dried herbal notes, medium plus acidity, dark cherry and more perfectly ripe juicy tannins and more of those dried herb notes. Tasty.

Still love this wine. Shout out @Martin Davies for gifting me a 2002 monthelie a few years back that made me aware of the region

Light but not weak... Balanced. If this ages with keeping the balance intact, it could fade really gracefully, will be interesting to see

2010 vintage. Gorgeous fruit forward berry mix on the nose. Vanilla and cappuccino. On the palate, a little lacking on depth of flavour. Tannins on the low side - which impacts the body too, which is medium minus. However I expect this will fill out with air. Decent finish. Probably still 3-5 years too early to drink. Very good. NB: after an hour, the wine has opened up, filling the room with fruity aromas. The structural elements have not changed.
