‘Matured for 20 months in 300-litre barrels, 75% new. Red and black berries, some herbal lift and oystershell on the nose. Full but balanced – great clarity of fruit, bright acidity and a pleasantly austere finish. Very pure and focused but that much less imposing than 2015.’ – Christian Eedes,, 95/100

‘Profound, graceful Bordeaux red, 2 years in 75% new oak. 80% cab in 2016, noticeably opulent, with brooding blackcurrant, mulberry in complex harmony with earth, graphite & crushed herbs. Collector’s items - decant for now.’ – Platter’s Guide, 5* (95/100)

‘Balanced, refined and mineral. Etched with underlining fruit power, It is fresh, stylish and subtle with dense age worthy tannins and a long, tight finish.’ – Glenelly Estate

Producer information Glenelly was established in 2003 with a clear vision to produce long-ageing fine wine. It was started by May de Lencquesaing, previous owner of Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in Bordeaux. Much work has gone into the vineyards, cellar and winemaking but, more notably, their old-world patience has contributed to the wines. The winery is environmentally friendly and the vineyards are managed with minimal intervention and sustainable techniques.
