Reviews & distinctions
Aromas of crushed red fruits, quality structure thanks to well tamed tannins, roundness of the material. A nice wine from a work well mastered extraction.
⭐ 1 star in the “Guide Hachette des vins”
Garnet red color. Complex nose with a beautiful palette of red and black fruits, spices and toasty and vanilla notes. After a round and supple attack, the wine expresses itself on a beautiful palette of red, black fruits and spices. It stretches on a beautiful material with fine tannins. The wine is on evolved aromas of his age.
Dense dress; discreet nose, which opens with aeration on notes of spicy red and black fruits; vinous and full-bodied, with a fresh and persistent finish. A “jovial” wine, tonic and well built.

The garnet color is limpid, the red fruit flavors mingle with the spicy notes, and the round, bold tannins are charming and complex.

This cuvee opens up to the bustle with complex notes of candied grapes and violets, accompanied by an original touch of citron. Frank, voluminous and robust, the palate combines ripe fruit with woody notes.
