Our sommelier’s comments

Purple color with elegant purplish reflects.
Sublime nose with a temptation to taste it immediately. The first nose is very expressive with a bouquet of red and black fruits: cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, red plum. A perfume of dried flowers and sweet spices complete this aromatic range. A nice fresh nose.
The first palate is very aromatic with some notes of black fruits, like a real grape juice, a real delight. The wine is powerful yet elegant with stylish tannins. The texture is very smooth. A very fruity long finish.
