At this stage the differences between the two wines is less marked than it will be in five years time but even now some of the aromas and flavours are different. Some of the vines here are 100 years old, with most around 80. There are aromas of strawberry creams and dark chocolate yet also a hint of game. The texture is terrific and and very cultured and the tannins are wonderful. Is is better? Hard to say, it’s just different. Both are awesome village wines. Drink from 2014
