96 Points

Bright, deep dark ruby with an opaque core, purple reflections and a discreet bright rim. Intense red fruit on the nose with some cranberries, ethereal nuances of pine needles, some lavender, thyme, this is a multi-faceted and fascinating bouquet. Complex, silky and sweet on the palate, ripe, well-integrated tannins, this shows great length with vanilla and fine nougat on the finish. A powerful, juicy immediately convincing wine with good ageing potential.

(drinking now until 2045).
