Boasting beautifully pure notes of crème de cassis, graphite, spring flowers, and lead pencil shavings, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, yet stays weightless and elegant. It’s perfectly balanced, and again, has off-the-charts purity leading to a great finish. It needs 3-4 years of bottle age yet will keep for 2-3 decades. collapse

It's quite oaky—marked by the élevage of 19 months in new French oak—spicy, toasty and creamy. It has a full-bodied palate with abundant, fine-grained tannins. This will need time in bottle. It's a wine aimed for fans of powerful, concentrated and generously oaked wines. They expect to fill some 40,000 bottles in late June 2018. - LG collapse
