Tasting Note: Floral notes of violets and roses entice the bouquet along with a concentration of Christmas spice and plum pudding. Each sip is deeply rich, with flavours ranging from Kirsch-macerated black cherries, truffles, tobacco to dark chocolate-enrobed hazelnuts. There are also savoury undertones in the after taste. With brisk acidity and warming alcohol in harmony with the malleably powerful structure. Seamlessly integrated, this world-class wine should reward contemplation for at least another two decades.
