2011 sees the unveiling of a new label for this old L&S favourite and its a cracker - a real improvement adding class to the look of this super value red from Stellenbosch. This is the flagship wine from May-Eliane de Lencquesain's (of Pichon-Lalande fame) immaculate South African outpost. It has an incredibly french feel which is jaw-dropping as you travel around this beautiful wine region - it really stands up for its elegance and well cut lines. But there is a lovely sophisticated flesh here too - dark, quite brooding plummy fruit has a firm satisfying feel, neatly spiced and framed with super fine structure - this is a bargain and a sophisticated, stylish wine, beyond the norm from this part of the world.
