Other Reviews….
MV stands for multiple vineyard, the team have six biodynamic vineyards in the region and this wine has fruit from four of them. The wine spent a year in French oak and presents as a purple colour. This is tight and concentrated with a nose that shows black fruits, chocolate, charcoal and black cherries. Seamless in structure, the palate offers cloves, soy and aniseed. Very good focus and length here, with silky tannins on the finish, a finish which maintains its intensity right through. Ten years. Drink 2024-2034.
