This is in such elegant, suave and regal form in 2017 with white pepper-dusted, fresh summer berries, graphite, deeper woody-spice notes of cardamom and cloves and swirling perfume. The palate has a super fresh, fleshy and detailed feel with a wealth of bright, juicy and crunchy fruit on offer with such fresh, juicy and succulent tannins, carrying bright, lively blackberries with precision and intent. Impressive. Best from 2025.
One bottle shone like a beacon and I am happy to say that it might just be my favourite vintage ever of this famous label! 2017 Homage is a sensational wine, garnering a mighty 19/20 score in my notes and it arrives in the UK this week! No other wine came close to this mark.
