THE DECANTER : STEVEN SPURRIER 2012 TASTING NOTE : 17

2012 Vieilles Vignes.

Score : 17

Dense red, purple rim, rich velvety colour,  richer fruit than the above, more concentration but less immediate lift and charm, broader texture and more depth and tannins are denser but also very ripe, natural acidity adds to the persistence, an altogether deeper, more robust wine with fragrance and depth of fruit that is rare in this appellation, but it will need time to open up.  2016-24.
