Reviews & distinctions

Review

A fresh, frank, supple and fruity wine, to drink in its youth.

Discreet but end to the olfaction, on red fruits and spices. The palate is supple and light, though a bit more austere in the final. The set is pleasant and will appreciate young.

Review

The color is bright and purplish and the bouquet is fresh and mineral, with woody nuances. On the palate, ripe and well-extracted tannins reveal an important aging potential.

 

Review

The sustained dress shines with purple reflections. Complex and elegant, the bouquet combines ripe red fruits and a roasted and cocoa woody, reflecting the aging of a year in barrels. The same palette extends into a powerful and balanced mouth.
