Drink 2015 - 2025
The 2014 Radio Lazarus is back after missing 2013 (it was blended into Cartology). It comes from a hilltop, organically farmed vineyard planted in 1978 and is 100% Chenin Blanc on shale soils. It has a very refined bouquet with honeysuckle, warm gravel, a touch of fennel and sage. The palate is beautifully balanced, effortless and refined, understated at first but delivering a very succinct, desiccated orange peel and fennel-tinged finish. It actually becomes more unctuous as it opens up. It does not have the length of the 2013, but this is so subtle that it's complexity might be overlooked.
