Here the nose is more deeply pitched still with its somber yet fresh array of plum, dark currant, newly turned earth and forest floor scents. There is a marked difference in scale as there is better density to the muscular and intense flavors that brim with evident minerality on the firm, serious and moderately austere finale. At least some patience advised. In short, this is textbook Lavaut. Drink: 2027+

Gorgeously scented with red cherry – immediate, smile-inducing pleasure, before you have even tasted it. There’s a dustiness too but in a good way. More serious, savoury and spiced on the palate, darker than I expected and yet with so much energy. Finest texture. Spiced and incredibly long. 2023 - 2033
