"Diaphanous fruit, sour cherries, woodland strawberries, delicate spices, mouth-filling despite its gauzy structure. Beautiful acidity. Read direction and raciness. Lone lines. Tiny shadows. Nooks and crannies. I see what he means about the chocolate; it's raspberries rolled in cacao dust. Beautifully stitched into the finish." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 17.5 points
