Compote of red and black berry fruit dusted with baking spice on the nose. Lovely interplay of ripe, yet lively hedgerow and dark fruit with spice, bright succulence and a deeper, earthier cocoa note. Rounded, plush and rich, the wine is elegant, polished and statuesque. Seamless integration of fruit and sympathetic oak adds to the overall impression of harmony. Focused and long with a rewarding finish.

Vineyard / Terroir / Climate With less rain and more difficult conditions, total wine grape production was lower than in 2015. Despite the drier weather, the vineyards remained healthy, producing smaller berries with high flavour concentration and good colour. Depth and subtle structure indicate a very promising vintage for the 2016 wines.
