14 Nov, 2020 – Very intense, pure raspberry and blueberry fruit aromas with pomegranate, strawberry, wet stones, wild herbs and sandalwood-like, floral spices. The palate arrives on taut, powerful tannins and attractive, pastry-like layers, building into the long, powerful and unwavering finish. This is very young, very contained and energetic grenache that has been captured in full flight. Planted in 1947 on ironstone, which underwrites the considerable power of this wine. Drinkable now, but better from 2023."
