Judges Tasting Notes

Straw yellow in colour with golden brushstrokes. There is a smoky, spicy ethereal character, which combines with toasted hazelnut, dried figs, dried blueberry and fresh cherries, with a light dusting of Christmas spices. Beautiful precise definition in the mouth full of vivacity and freshness with some development just beginning to show. Coffee and truffle, and incense all play together in a rich cornucopia of flavours, Texturally, this has it all. Mineral, acidity a prickle of tannin and gorgeous autolytic characters. The mousse is creamy but assertive without aggression, the structure is bold with fantastic depth and breadth, showing ultimate poise and elegance. A true champion.
