Sommelier's Notes Extremely interesting wine where the nose of berries and spices smoothen into a cooked fruits taste. Directly from the vineyard. Exclusively on The French Cellar.

A beautiful bouquet of aromas. Delicate, complex and pleasant nose with candied berries (raspberry, cherry), cooked wild peach, nutmeg, pepper, toasted brioche, tobacco and black mushroom.
The attack is smooth and delicate with silky tannins covering the mouth. Predominant taste of cooked fruits offers a long-lasting pleasure.
