What the Critics say
'It's true that only one Bordeaux wine made it through to our Best In Show collection this year, but that wine is a commanding one. This statuesque St Emilion is dark black-red in colour; aromatically, its glowing ripe black fruits both seem to be sweetened yet freshened by classy oak. The palate is expansive, amply ripe, rich and gratifying, lent complexity by flavours of smoke and earth but by firm supporting tannins, too, as well as by sweet-toned acidity. All the lineaments are there for a hugely enjoyable wine; just add time. Drink 2020-2030'
