Description

Smoky fruit, preserved lemon and spice. Juicy palate of mirabelle plum and peach, and not an ounce of baby fat. Lithe with bright herbal elegance and class. Not as openly complex as some, but twice as long and a lifetime more delightful. 17.5/20 - Paula Sidore, JancisRobinson.com

The 2021 vintage has given the bold and generous character of this site a cool herbal element. Next to the ripe mirabelle and melon fruit are notes of liquorice and sandalwood. The grapefruit acidity lifts the rather full body very nicely. Quite a firm finish with plenty of fine tannins. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. 94 points - James Suckling
