Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
"A round and seductive wine, appreciated by all wine connoisseurs. With its lively and bright colour, it has intense fruity aromas reminiscent of gooseberry and black currant, evolving towards spicy nuances as the wine gets older. On the palate, there is a nice balance between texture and finesse, with firm but refined tannins. Long and enticing aftertaste, with flavors of very ripe fruit".
Deep red colour. Intense nose of red and black fruits. The mouth is fleshy with some intensity and offers a long aftertaste. The prestigious wines will enjoy a very long ageing potential. The more modest wines are voluptuous.
Temperature: 15°C (58°C).
Cellaring: 2 to 6 years.
