A message in a bottle with salty, oceanic aromatics, followed by a treasure trove of dark red fruits. Medium body, forward and approachable with a soft, refined, fruity finish, this will be delicious on release. Drink this while waiting for the sublime Grand Vin to develop. In my view, this second wine is better than Beychevelle in the 70s and in a good portion of the 80s!
