TASTING NOTE
"The color is a very deep ruby, and it is still on the youth by its purple hues. The nose is delicate, slightly closed at first. After a aeration, the wine reveals its intensity. Aromas of blackberry and cassis are highlighted by toasted almonds and chocolate woodlot. On the palate the wine is rich, concentrated by the presence of ripe black fruits. In addition to roundness and mouthfeel, tannins marked by their presence and their subtleties. The peppery note on the finish gives freshness and remarkable draw. This powerful and concentrated wine gladly accompany a beautiful veal with cream and morels or entrecote bordelaise."
