This was bottled about a month before tasting after 18 months in seasoned vats, but the just-bottled sample was not really ready. This was instead a pre-bottling sample. It comes in with 115 grams of residual sugar.- MS collapse

Bramble, anise and apple wood details are tucked in neatly on the finish, giving this a compact feel for now, but everything is in place for a long, steady maturation in the cellar. Shows a pleasant, dry edge to the finish. Best from 2035 through 2055. 1,200 cases made, 263 cases imported. — JM collapse

Packed with both tannins and serious black fruits, it is textured with minerality and acidity. The power of the wine is immense as is its density, promising considerable aging. Drink the wine from 2023. ROGER VOSS collapse

It's lifted and aromatic on the nose with a touch of green leaf and ginger and a wild, herbal edge. The palate's not especially big, and has lovely freshness all the way through with fine-grained, peppery tannins, showing near-perfect purity and leading to a long, linear finish. Should be approachable early but this will also last the course. collapse

It has a fragrant and more floral bouquet compared to its peers, not as intense as either Warre’s and Cockburn’s with scents of blackcurrant, Medjool dates, raspberry preserve and raisin, well defined, although you are convinced that this Vesuvio is holding something back. The palate is smooth with lace-like tannin, very well judged acidity, quite powerful and dense with a voluminous black plum and blackcurrant finish with hints of espresso and mint. This is a fine Vesuvio although, it lacks the profundity of its peers in this vintage. Total production 1,200 cases. -- Neal Martin collapse
