Blackish crimson out to the rim. Heady and particularly dense on the nose. Very bright fruit – massive intensity and energy. Well-managed tannins. Very serious stuff. Interesting that it is the Côte Rôtie and not this wine that has sold out chez Corney & Barrow. Massive tannic charge and at present a very dry finish.
