More about the wine
“I am not a great Bordeaux drinker. It is so very grand, so very upright, so very certain of itself and its own correctness, that I find nothing exciting or enjoyable in acknowledging that at its best (and most expensive) it is magisterially delicious. Nevertheless, to find wine of such quality at this price point is something to get very excited about. For me this is Bordeaux brilliance – authentic, bright fruit atop structured layers of earthy, dark bramble. This wine is a fascinating and meandering dialogue with a dear friend, an up-all-night getting deep and meaningful kind of wine, lost in the thick dark woods of provocative conversation.
Wine for me is a social activity. I relish the affinity it has for discourse, how readily it seems to inspire a steady flow of thought. The right wine with the right person can provoke hours of speculative debate. This wine is thoughtful, articulate, elegant and definitive, the perfect dinner guest.”
