Sensory profile A medium-intense, luminous ruby red. The nose offers a beautifully-balanced, aromatic fusion of ripe fruit and crisp, fresh vegetable. Syrupped cherries and prune compote are lifted by refreshing scents of liquorice root, nutmeg, and sweet geranium, all backgrounded by a whiff of red berries in spirits, which gives the bouquet elegance and complexity. The palate, of fairly good weight, exhibits a mineral-driven energy and aromatic fruit; a superbly-balanced progression leads to a dry, clean-profiled finish laced with pleasantly- bitterish toasted nuts.

Pairings This is the ideal partner to young, fatty cheeses of medium age, and it is sublime with a range of pork dish (but hold the prosciutto), and it becomes positively princely with naturally sweet lighter meats, such as hare and rabbit.
