Beautifully packaged in a wooden presentation box – perfect gift idea.
The 2003 is completely opaque, right to the rim of the glass. The nose is also imposing with magnificent notes of lifted spice.
Closer investigation reveals wonderfully multi-dimensional but very condensed aromas at this early stage. A dark, rich and concentrated palate displays the up front flavour of apricot nectar, and flows into brooding cassis, anise and tar.
This wine possesses a multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve.
