James Halliday 96
Two hogsheads of new French oak (Mercurey and Remond) the total make. Wow. The colour is inky deep, yet vibrant on the rim, and the expressive bouquet is swamped by the tsunami of luscious blackberry fruit that retains shape and balance against the odds, and has flourished with the aid of the oak. The screwcap makes this a 50-year wine.
