Experts say

93 Points and 25th in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2015 – “Well-crafted and suave, with refined flavors of raspberry tart, red plum and cherry pastry, matched to cardamom and savory spice notes. Silky tannins and a plush, creamy finish offer chocolate mousse accents. Drink now through 2022.” – Kim Marcus

91 Points “It is simply delicious” – Mark Squires

“This is a nice svelte, juicy example of the vintage with sweet spices – lifted star anise and cinnamon to its ripe raspberry, black cherry and plum fruit. Great balance; very drinkable. One of my favourite vintages of this wine so far.” – Sarah Ahmed

  1. alistair.ayres

    This is an excellent wine. Best I have tried in a long time. Absolutely fantastic to drink either on its own or with a good steak. Highly recommended!

    Buy this!

    It’s not cheap but when you open it (and please for the love of all that is holy, decant it!) you will taste every penny. A proper wine. Lots of flavour and complexity. Swill it round your mouth; luxuriate in it.

    I open it to treat myself on those weekends I have a winning weekend on the horses. Usually with a rare ribeye or sirloin and baked potato, mushrooms, onions etc

    Buy it to treat yourself or buy it as a gift for someone who you hold in high esteem!
