    "An estate-grown parcel of 1.69 hectares with a third of old vines and 25% new oak. There are brambly, sous-bois aromas with red cherries, berries and cool, dark cherries. Succulent on the palate with fine, firm tannins that hold well. This has some aging potential. Try from 2021."

    "This wine is ripe with tannins and red-cherry fruits. It has spice from wood aging and a firm core that will soften. This will be a rich wine, juicy and well balanced. Drink from 2023."
