From Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages:
Gunpowder and ash to start, which does blow off slowly, leaving sweet notes of apple pie. Dense, baked apple and pear, opulent and honeyed without heaviness. A slight metallic note, which adds interest rather than detracting from the whole. Orange peel. Tight long finish. Good Value. Drink 2018-2022. 16.5 Points
