"A faint whiff of reduction and then a more mineral character, less sweetness. Hmm, here’s good richness to the texture and depth of flavour too – that’s a great finish – vibrant, somehow darker agrume style fruit but vibrant and finishing dry, almost tannic. Needs a little patience but that’s going to be a top wine…"

"Savory bite and grip. This has cut and sapidity. It feels nice and cold in this hot vintage."
