Tasting Note:

An extraordinary wine from an extraordinary vintage, you have to go back and taste this several times as you get something different with each taste. A menthol infused nose precedes an intense, powerful but not too aggressive palate, gripping and austere enough without being overwhelming, impressive intensity, concentration and depth of flavour. Completely different to the 2003 which is all red fruit and seduction now, this is more brooding and needs time but offers layer upon layer of herb, sweet spice, smoke, dark berry and hedgerow fruit. Spectacular, but be patient this will need 15-25 years to be at its peak. A vineyard that is only be released after ten years in bottle. This is the estate’s second ever release. The ageing is the same as the rest of the Cru; two years in barrel, with an additional seven years in bottle. Up to 300 cases are made annually.
