'Twelve rows of gamay vines at Rippon. The vines are over 25 years old now too. Spends just under a year in used oak barrels, hits the bottle with no filtering or fining. It’s a year where no sulphur needed to be used, according to the winemaking team (a decision assessed each year per wine). Spicy! Bright, pickled cherry scents, splash of maraschino cherry juice, whiff of reduced balsamic, green herbs, undergrowth/briar scents. Just fantastic. So vibrant. Crisp edges, juiciness, gossamer yet firm tannin web, great length, just beyond light bodied and unbelievably moreish. Sets the palate alight. Beautiful, fine, pretty expression of gamay. 95 points.' Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
