The palate is equally restrained, concentrated but with depth that has inherent grace. Firm tannins still crunch, but every crackle of that sinuous texture holds more perfume and more cherry. The body is taut tand toned. All is framed with freshness and will only get better over the years. Drink by 2050. ANNE KREBIEHL MW

A rich, layered red with intense, very ripe fruit that shows dried cherries, smoked oak and some meat. It’s full-bodied and very layered. Solid tannins give depth to the wine. Try after 2023.

This has a high-class bouquet of pure red cherries, cranberry and wild strawberry scents, hints of rose petal and orange blossom emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red berry fruit and a frame of quite firm tannins that should guarantee the longevity of this Malconsorts. It feels a little aloof on the finish, but it just needs time to soften its edges. -- Neal Martin
