An intricately layered and complex array of oak maturation and ripe fruit aromas. Hints of mocha and roast coffee bean laced with vanilla overlay ripe plum & subtle mulberry fruit. A richly laden palate of oak and ripe fruit flavours smoothly interwoven with extended oak maturation. Dark berry fruits, hints of plum and dusty mulberry with subtle vanilla, mocha and chocolaty oak flavours are complemented by fine grained tannins.
96 pts – J. Halliday
‘A selection of grapes from the best blocks, matured in oak barriques for 28 months (55% new, mostly French). A particularly elegant wine, one of the best-balanced Odysseys for some years, with supple cassis, earth, mint and black olive cradled by fine quality oak, and protected by high quality cork (the Spanish owner of Freixinet having friends in the right places). There is no reason why this wine will not kick on well past its 20th birthday.’
