5 years, 2016 vintage drinking today (August 2021). Almost ideal, maybe a bit too sweet and fruity.

Double decant. Dark ruby red. On the nose: strawberry/raspberry, rose, dried leaves. Taste: cherry, strawberry, vanilla, spice, smokey finish with a little tannic bite.

Time for the Christmas wines. Thought I had it right and was looking forward to trying this but I am clearly many Christmas Eve’s too early. Not even going to score this as I have no idea what it will be or when. Only drinkable after 2 hours of air and then very acidic which overpowers the flavours which are there but nowhere near developed. Obviously a great producer but I’ll need to try again another day. At least I have room left for the egg nog.
