Just the nose itself would keep you occupied for a good while, and on the palate it jumps out of the glass. Seriously impressive stuff, clear minerality, pulsing with life.

Pure, dark chocolate spread, liquorice root and slate edging. Rich fruits, but with crushed mint leaves gathering pace though the palate to lift things up. Just the nose itself would keep you occupied for a good while, and on the palate it jumps out of the glass. Seriously impressive stuff, clear minerality, pulsing with life. The 2015 vintage was seen at the time as being better in St Emilion but with every year that passes it becomes more clear that 2016 is the one with real legs. One of the real bargains of the vintage also. 60% new oak, 30% one year and the rest in cement eggs.

Drinking Window 2027 - 2040.
