"....With all that posh livery on the blacksmithed essence of old Clare we get this sweet royalty: in some ways a solid ingot of calmly reserved power, in others a felicitously-dressed scoundrel spilling ethanol all down its shirt.
It does have some pretty minty edges in its intro, and then the spirit of great French trees that would have built a brutal navy moves into the field of sensory vision and you know you might just as well take your bottle to the hold, lie down on the sacks, and wait til the cannons go quiet.

90 POINTS ~ James Halliday, Wine Companion 2016
“Black as a starless night; you not only get 17% alcohol, but 91yo vines, 23 months in new French oak and 100% pressings…. it has a curious fascination.”
