This historic estate has created a stylish wine in 2014. Darker fruits dominate and the wine expresses a tension which suggests there is more to come in the future. Blackberries and a touch of cassis add real appeal. There is a generous core of velvety fruit and the most appropriate descriptor for the entire tasting experience is ‘charming’. There are creamy notes on the nose, it's really open and expressive. There is a roundness to the fruit too, with an enticing spicy edge on the finish. Good length and attractive, refreshing acidity dances in the mouth.
