Label Artist: Victory Year (Philippe Julian)


What more can be said about this wine other than it is extraordinary and not very much was made! Incredibly haunting bouquet of flavoured coffee, cloves and cinnamon. Raspberries (utterly surprising), gingerbread, blackcurrants and mint all battle on the palate with coffee and chocolate lining up to get in on the act. It finishes in such elegant fashion - so silky and so seamless. This is not a banal, huge wine, it is just a totally complete Claret, perhaps the greatest ever. In 2019, amazing, essence-like aromas of black fruits and liquorice - so precise. The flavours follow through from the bouquet. It still has wonderful concentration and freshness - a miracle of nature, seemingly eternal.
