1 case
Equiv. £80.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Incredibly intense and linear. Tight-knit and firmly structured initially, each little sip gives and glimpse more of its full potential however. Deep minerally black cherry fruit, notes of earth, pepper, stone, salt, bramble and Morello cherry. Crisp, high definition and hauntingly long Cote Rotie. Top class.

The wine is aged for 24 months in 30% new oak and is bottled without filtration.
