Widely regarded as an exceptional vintage, Warre's 2009 has a very enticing, perfumed aroma of cassis, eucalyptus and violets. Lifted floral notes blend with mint and very dark chocolate, as well as brambly black fruits and freshly milled black pepper.
Cellar for a few more years at least, but ideally hang on for another 5-10 years to see it flourish to its full potential.
