It’s full-bodied with firm, powdery tannins. Fantastic depth of fruit here with well integrated wood and tannins. Mushrooms and fresh berries at the end. One of the best in years from here. Try from 2024.

Made in a more elegant, seamless style, it builds nicely with time in the glass and is a complex, nuanced, balanced 2018 that can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years.

It's a good wine but it is big, with notes of liquorice, slate, pencil lead and ripples of brambly black fruits, alongside clear freshness. He has walked the line and done a good job of harnessing the succulence of the vintage. You've got to admire him for his consistency.

Modern in style, with round, fat textures, the wine is lush, shows good fruit and intensity, but it needs time for the oak to better integrate.
