Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Medium-bodied and well-balanced red and black fruits supported by soft, but persistent, tannins.

Even with the oak in the background this wine is not short of regional varietal tannins and the way they are handled is critical. Since Loic has arrived they have gained an extra level of polish and refinement, with the tannins being mouth watering and food friendly rather than blocky and drying. Each vintage since 02 has been an exercise in refinement with the regional firm finish always in evidence making them food friendly. Older vintage prices are from auctions. The 2009 is a full bodied, firm finishing style with a lifted black currant fruit pastille, mint aromas that are appealing and varietal. The palate has great length, a black fruit middle palate and fine grained tannins with flavours to finish in the black fruit spectrum. Extremely mouth filling powdery regional tannins that demand food and time. A big wine that is a text book example of a iron fist in a velvet glove.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Quite developed, as one would expect; a light- to medium-bodied wine with elegant cedary/earthy/bottle-developed cabernet aromas; earthy/leathery notes are just too pronounced, needing more sweet fruit at the word go.
