'Very reticent nose, great texture and bone dry. This is very confident but still pretty austere. Delicacy on the finish and real density. Long but no bruiser.... Drink 2012-2025.18/20' Jancis Robinson MW, tasted 2008.
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where it has been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
