Dark spicy plum, some lean iron. Very defined and balanced. Quite tight now.

VCC is my favourite Pom & @ £130 this shows how great an “off” vintage can be 👍 Great now & still improving!

🍇 83% Mer & 17% Cab F

🍷 Opaque ruby

👃 Soft oaky smokey spiced dark plum & cherry in damp earth, prune, vanilla, liquorice, red currant, minerals & dark mocha w/ a blackcurrant tickle - divine 😎

👄 Med creamy silky smooth body of chewy spiced plum & blackcurrant in liquorice mocha w/ a dark cherry compote touch

🎯 Long stewed dark plummy fruit earthy mocha dark berry/cherry chocy linger

Distinctly wet dirt basement floor with cherry cough medicine hiding in the background of the nose. The Yanina are strong but not overwhelming. On the lighter side, but great last and yummy

It was immediately great, right out of the bottle. So many years ahead of it, too.

A lovely ripe enveloping nose with plum, damson and raisin. Very pure- delicious merlot with real clarity of flavor. Young still- this has a future. Very tasty

This was the last of 4 reds we had for our main course last night. A bin end from the Wine Society Dining Club won at the Xmas raffle. Certainly the best of the 4 good Full body, soft tannins, fruity great with beef wellington 😁. I decanted all 4 wines about 2.5 hours before drinking and felt it opened them all out - hope I can get more of this! I notice this app says buy at $195 and French wine is cheaper in USA than in the UK. Obvioulsy I was lucky getting this in the raffle.

Hey now! This was gorgeous, complimentary in body to the Burgundies, and in a beautiful drinking zone. A privilege to have with the winemaker!
