Bottled 2016. Deep burnished copper in colour, 90% opaque. Powerful nose of sherbet lemons and hints of almond paste. Smooth entry into the mouth with hints of burnt sugar, crepe suzette and a huge dose of acidity; the whole combines to give a great and complex palate. The acidity drives the aftertaste, intense and powerful, and a lovely finish that goes through several phases and ends with a delicious lingering orange. 92/100. 26-Sep-16. Decanted 1 hour.
