This shows a very spicy and attractively complex style on the nose with a wealth of dark stones and violets, as well as dark cherries. The palate has a succulent, vibrant and almost crisp feel to the tannins. There’s attractive firmness, but plenty of flesh below. From biodynamically grown grapes. Try from 2022.

Emma’s Block here. Magnificent perfume, so fragrant, so much going on, dried flowers, cherry juice, game meat, truffles and alpine herbs. Supple texture, spreads beautifully and satiny through the palate, a wide, lacy graze of tannin helping things along. So much detail here, such a luxurious but wild-edged wine. Fantastic. And so much energy. Fantastic wine.
