Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Deep red. Complex dried herb and cassis. Elegant palate, good fruit and good firm tannins. Worked very well with the food. Enough elegance to not compete but plenty of structure and flavour to cope with the rich dish. Very good combination

Stuart Halliday
Cassis notes, with a slight herbal edge. Palate has lovely weight and structure, well integrated and fine. Lovely finish

Oliver Masters
Dark youthful red, cassis spice and dark red fruits on nose, dense warm fruit finish. Not enhanced by beef cheek

Natasha Hughes
Crunchy dark fruit and lifted notes of violet and herbs, as well as a rasp of ferrous earthiness. Lively acidity and sinewy tannins. Rich and full, but with a pleasing freshness.

Corey Ryan
Brick brown colour, spicy red fruit aromas. The palate is focused chewy refined wine, chiselled tannins. The beef cheeks and sauce work to promote the bright fruits of the Fer, the acid line cuts through the rich flavours well.

Matthew Deller
Dark appearance. Vinous, granite, earth, herby, black fruits, clove oak. Structured, taut and quite dense, with crisp acidity and austere, powdery tannins. Good length. Food accentuates the taut structure and primary purity of the wine, but also the alcohol.
