Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) the Cabernet Sauvignon reveals lovely floral aromas in the first year then, as the wine ages, great structure on the palate. The Cabernet Franc brings lots of freshness in the tannins, and the Merlot contributes roundness and flesh. The attack on the palate is clean, the texture is silky, and the complexity elegant. Underpinned by great length of flavour. With its long ageing potential, the wine goes on in time to reveal hints of forest floor, leather, cigar-box and liquorice –always with its hallmark elegance.

    (2000 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Intense colour, ripe, almost overripe with a hint of leafy blackcurrant, oak evident, more weight than usual at this stage, medium acidity and firm tannic finish. Ready 2010-2015. (tasted en primeur)
