About this product

Still an infant this offers up intense notes of ripe orchard fruits. Peach, apricot, and plum are all rimmed with classic smoky notes from barrel ageing and the gentle spice of botrytis. In the mouth this is big yet airy with true mouthfilling weight but is a touch diffuse on the midpalate and finishes a bit short. This needs time to integrate and will remain a truly hedonistic vintage.
