Jeanneret Denis Reserve Shiraz 2016

Where to start? This is quite simply a stupendous wine and the best Shiraz weve ever made: it has a depth and in particular an intensity that makes it seem like an Essence of Shiraz; its as if one had reduced the wine down by half to see just how intense one could make it (but we didnt!). This is a wine that can stop you in your tracks, halt a conversation and plunge you into profound contemplation. Blacker than the blackest thought, and darker than the deepest cave on a moonless night, the colour in itself is utterly striking. And so is the nose. Tightly-wound and smoky, it is an exercise in controlled power and only hints at the depths to be unfurled, and it has a distinct umami character twirled through the deep, dark fruit. The power and intensity hinted at on the nose are confirmed on the palate where a confrontingly intense wave of flavour floods the mouth, it almost hurts and is a convincing demonstration of the close relationship between pleasure and pain. If this wine was a building, it would undoubtedly by a Gothic cathedral with lots of particularly unsettling gargoyles seemingly following you with their malevolent eyes. The palate echoes the nose in its unrevealed power, the iceberg effect: the 10% you can see only hints at the enormity and solidity of the 90% that remains hidden. A silken blanket of black cherry bitumen threatens to take over your entire head and your central nervous system may never be the same again. But a babe now, with a long and promising future ahead of it. If you do drink it now, itll be quite a ride, so remember to pack a decanter and a spoon.

Now wheres that haunch of venison and those roast pheasants?
