A proper old school Bordeaux this one, complete with a thoroughly old school label to match. Old school works here though, the deep dry palate all about length and savoury goodness, looking restrained and serious indeed.
The wine has lots of fruit, plums, black currants and cherries with a subtle oak toastiness on the nose. Typical for Bordeaux reds the palate is a blend of elegance and finesse. The fruit is the main focus on the palate, with classic blackcurrant and plum characters with traces of dark chocolate and spice from the careful use of aged and new barrels. The wine has excellent length and beautiful balance and finesse.
