The wonderfully sleek, concentrated and intensely mineral-laden flavors possess the hallmark refinement of a fine Taillepieds, all wrapped in a very firmly structured but not really austere finale. With that said, this is a 'buy and forget you own it' wine for at least 10 years and it should ultimately need 20 to 25 years to fully mature.

Spicy forest floor and tobacco pouch aromas lead you into a palate that is grippy, peppery and firm, with layers of red cherry and raspberry fruit embellished by 30% new wood.

Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, this is a lively and serious wine, underpinned by a muscular chassis of rich, powdery tannin.- WK
