This product is currently sold out

Although non-vintage wines can confuse communication with the consumer, this is avoided by Francis who states not only the date of disgorgement on the back label (in this case, July 2016)  but also the length of time the wine was age on the lees (here, a magnificent 48 months)
This has a majestic, commanding and rich nose. Aromas of spiced blood orange, grilled nuts and honey all make for a complex and engaging proposition; there's a toffee and brulee-like layer too, with baked apples and spice. The palate's bold, powerful and makes a grand statement of black grape depth. Flavoursome blueberry, cherry and peach pastry notes run long amid smooth-honed phenolics. Drink now or up to five years if you prefer to embrace more richness. 93/100 - James Suckling
