Wine Description

Beautiful very dark colour. Discreet nose with primary notes that develop in fullness and density. Quite powerful on the palate with very good structure and a nice tannic finish with well-integrated woody notes.

    (1999 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. All the elegance and cut of a fine suit: close-textured, unctuous, supple and refined, with sandalwood and black pepper infusing the blackcurrant.
