Jasper Morris MW: ‘Cuvée du Chêne’. Glowing purple, super ripe fruit, some chocolate notes and that bit of wrinkled grapeskin dryness, but a total explosion of fruit on the palate, around 13.5 he thinks. Certainly a massively long aftertaste. I shall be conservative here until we see how the balance of fruit intensity and possibly over-ripe flavours works out.
This is the stuff! Esoteric, earthy, expressive and elemental. Dried red fruits on the palate. Long, spicy length with an animal sort of muskiness about it. No uncleanliness – this is very much the terroir talking. (RH)
