17.5/20, Jancis Robinson
Full bottle 1,333 g. From several different sites, some more clay, some more limestone. Fermentation: 6–14 months in barrel, full malo. Aged 12–14 months in barrel, 10% new.
A little less obviously smoky/reductive than the 2018, with the fruit more to the fore: citrus that is both lemon and a little bit orangey. Also some toasty richness. More reductive/smoky on the palate than on the nose, with possibly even greater intensity of fruit and higher-tasting acidity than the 2018 (which was a warmer vintage and had longer in oak for that reason). Fabulous concentration of flavours but with no heaviness. Highly complex and multilayered for such a young wine, with a long salty finish, like the 2018. Not quite as savoury as the 2018, more mouth-watering, and with that mineral tension that you can taste even with the intensity of the wine. Once again, VVGV. (JH)
