Avis d'expert
89 / 100

Tom Cannavan (01-2001) Nose of quite bright, sweet, focused black fruit. Theres an underpinning by creamy oak and a little bit of game and pencil-shavings. The palate is very tight and focused with glossy layers of black fruit and a little vegetal, animal note of interest. Fine tannins and length.

(05-2015) Rustic, tannic and tough, with a firm, classic bent toward cassis, tobacco and earthiness.

(10-2009) Big and beefy and still very young and even quite raw. Still quite chewy. By no means the most delicious wine here even if it is the most recognisable and valuable! A bit jagged in terms of acidity.

(10-2018) Tasted in Switzerland. Dark color, medium intensity and mature. Discreet nose, marked by notes of reduction and meat. Pleasant, fruity, but light palate. Its development seems to me to have been very rapid. Or it's the bottle.
