Capion Le Songe d’Éocène Rouge 2016Regular price £75.00
The nose is powerful, concentrated and aromatic. The palate has notes of ripe black fruit, sweet spice and mocha which lengthen over silky tannins.
“Aromas of vanilla, grilled plums, violets and crème de cassis soar from the glass, while the palate is full-bodied, concentrated and chewy and loaded with vibrant purple fruit flavor. The tannins mellow on the lingering finish, making it approachable now but suggesting up to a decade (or more?) of prime-time drinking.”
