Tasting Notes:
Well rounded nose and a fleshy palate of spicy sweet red and black fruits. Tannins are well managed, supple. Good balance. Quite an easy drinking style - certainly very drinkable.

Critic Reviews:
'Beautiful all around with plenty of sweet raspberry, blackberry pie, jam-covered toast and hints of pepper, this medium-bodied, pure, round and supple effort is perfect for drinking over the coming 5-7 years.' 91/100 (Wine Advocate)

'In the same vein [as HDM]: intense nose of ripe fruits with hints of menthol and spices, an imposing but never aggressive structure, elegant oaking and lovely aromatic persistence in the mouth.' 2 stars (Guide Hachette)

'A very good interpretation of the vintage with engaging notes of cocoa and kirsch. The palate is powerful and the tannins civilised.' (Bettane & Desseauve)
