Beautiful note with lots of fruit like blackberries, crushed raspberries and some dark plum. Full and wonderfully velvety on the palate with ripe tannins and a sweet pure dark fruit. Already drinks very well, but a few years patience will be rewarded. Best ever?
The Rollan de By has a ripe blackcurrant, cassis and plum-scented bouquet with a hint of blueberry jam developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a lactic entry, very polished with prominent new oak leading to a fleshy, easy-going finish. Tasted March 2011.
