A remarkably complex nose of bramble, hedgerows and tapenade. It's elegant yet deep - so many dichotomies here. Fresh yet ripe with so much length and lacy acidity which covers the palate. It's charming and so impressive.
As on the other wines from the Mitjavile family that are aged in 100% new Radoux Blend barrels, in this vintage the oak and a charry character seem more noticeable than usual, though here it is offset by the pretty red fruit that is waiting in the wings: succulent, sweet dark-red and plum fruit. Juicy and fresh but does need to see the oak recede. The tannins are deep yet many-layered and fine. Rich and long.
