More about this wine

Dark ruby. On the nose, ripe berry, warm butter, nuts and roasted chestnut with hints of black truffle and dark chocolate. On the palate, further hints of roasting coffee or toasted bread, hazelnut and plum compote. Strong tannins but harmonious maturity. A long substantial finish and in the end a very fruity wine.

Ben says (February 2017): The tasting notes above hit all the right places. What they cannot describe is how smooth and smoky this wine is. Despite the tannins, it seems, at first, to be quite a light wine but that is due to the smoothness. It soon becomes apparent that it is a really well balanced Beast that only needs a Beauty to recognise the royal prince that the exterior is hiding. This is gorgeous. The only sadness is that there are only 18 bottles left.
