From a case purchased on release and stored in an ideal UK cellar. Decanted an hour before dinner, almost no deposit. Colour is evolving but still deep garnet and no browning. This bottle is fresh, vigorous and full of energy, it had a satin texture and completely melted tannins, of the 4 vintages tasted side by side this was the most complete, not the biggest or ripest but the most harmonious, a completely enticing wine. (3/27/2017)


You can feel the gathering of dusk here, with the soft debris of tannins and anthocyanins as its structure softens with age. Beautiful persistency, not powerful but tenacious, with the salinity and the minty character give form and freshness to the finish of the wine, even after so many years. There are notes of seashell and lobster bisque going on here, tight at first but opening up quickly. (JA)(10/2016)
