"Marl and sandstone. A warmer vineyard. Made in barriques, 20% new oak, wide selection of casks. 30% whole bunches. Aged in oak for 16 months.
Really interesting nose. Hint of menthol and black, black fruit. Liquorice root. Very rugged and muscular and compact. Brambly briars, cassis, very inky. But through the deep-shadowed, dark-textured blackness lies this quite pool of wonderful cool acidity. Deep, long finish." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson /

A wine like a walk through the forest. Masculine notes of leather combined with flavors like cassis, black currant, moose and pine-needles. The white pepper spiciness and the rough tannin gave structure and the sharp, fresh acidity gives the lightness.
