BOND: A Complete Retrospective (Nov 2017)

A stellar wine, the 2002 Melbury is super-expressive today. Rich, ample and inviting, the 2002 is endowed with soft contours, radiant, rich fruit and fabulous balance. Mocha, smoke, leather, red stone fruit and sweet spices build into the resonant, deeply satisfying finish. The 2002 is one of the more overtly ripe, forward wines in the first flight of this tasting.
