Vibrantly fruity while also elegantly restrained, this superb-value Bordeaux has a brilliant nose of raspberry right from the start, with complexity emerging in the form of sweet plum, sour currant, earth, pepper, candle wax, and graphite minerality, the fascinating interplay of sweet and sour shining throughout, the length outstanding. If there's a fault, it's that it's a bit hollow mid-palette, but this is resolved somewhat with time in the open, and indeed it opens up a great deal. Still young and raw, tannins firm, there's room to mature, but even now it's a genuine pleasure to experience.
