Tasting Notes

A bright ruby colour in the glass, the nose is fragrant and vibrant with red berries, rose and a lick of sweet spice. The palate follows, with juicy red fruits bursting through lightly chalky and integrated tannins. There is classic Medocain savour - with hints of camphor and cedar - but this is delicately structured and vibrant with fruit and acidity. This purity and lift lingers on a floral finish, making this perfect to drink now - one of the first 2016s that we have tasted which is perfectly ready to drink. Moreish, fruit-driven and approachable.
