Hueful, bright, and true. Unfiltered and suspenseful, as a Burgundian monk would have made it one thousand years ago. True and bright aromatics follow: lively plums and dawn's forest berries. Black pepper, black tea, black cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry and violets. This red wine's savoury core is the world contracted thus. Around play myriad flavours and textures: umami, meatiness, masculinity, charisma, tiny knife-points of fresh berry compote - and following all a clean acidity. Underneath there are layers of broader red fruits and tannin's grip; graphite and minerality return at palate's end and a hint - a hint - of oak's choca/mocha spice sneaks in.
