|Julia Kelada rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:|
As with the other reviewed wines from 2011, it was a cool and wet year, both at flowering time and harvest time. The grapes therefore, were given a slightly longer ripening period and being a Cabernet , had tougher skins so were resilient to the rain. The result! A wondrous wine!
Made up of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Syrah .
There was a richness on the nose, definitely black fruits but almost with a velvety welcome. On the palate plump blackberries that slowly open up to wild blueberries, red and black currants and then wow...a pop of delicious kirsch! The journey continues to introduce a mineraly almost leafy note before a chocolate and pepper finish, ending with a wondrous velvety yet present tannin!
