Dark semi-opaque purple, leading to a small deep red rim. The nose is just wonderful - squished bramble, blackcurrant and black cherry aromas simply leap from the glass, with further notes of polished old leather, woodsmoke, balsam, iodine, herbs, curry spices and fine eau de vie. The palate offers masses of ripe red and black fruit flavours and a hint of soft citrus, with beautifully ripe, tea-like tannins and wonderfully mouth-watering acidity. And even at under 4 years old at the time of writing, and despite the fact that the tannins perhaps need a year or two to really integrate, youth is no bar to the sheer loveliness and approachability of this wine. Think of a top Bandol, but with more acidity, a touch softer and less forbidding at this stage - and a lot cheaper!
