As this is my 200th review according to Adegga stats I thought I'd make it something special. And what a wine to review. A very pale garnet in the glass with ethereal notes of mushrooms, strawberries, flowers, cigar box - in fact each time I went back to the glass I found something else to identify. Amazing. The palate started off minerally but then there were cherries, strawberry jam, vanilla and others all wrapped up in a touch of spice. Medium bodied with incredible balance and poise across the flavour spectrum, acidity and tannins. Mature yet youthful if that makes sense. Worth every penny of the £8 for a 25ml taster in The Sampler in London. I swear I can still smell the aromas a day later.....

moose One of those wines that defines the standard, I guess. Congrats! About the same price as the Sassaica perhaps. Very special.

rckr1951 Whew! Congratulations! And what a wine to celebrate with - a vintner that really helps to set the bar for CdP.
