Tasting Notes :
Lovely intense shiny deep crimson robe, with small stone fruit (plum, wild cherry)
aromas, and notes of fresh liquorice and undergrowth.
Great amplitude for this powerful, elegant, racy and fresh palate; lovely structure
with really fine and silky tannins. A lovely long-lasting finish with liquorice and sweet spice notes.
Winemaker’s Advice :
With this wine’s excellent cellaring potential (15 to 20 years), the gourmet should
wait 5 years before this wine starts to show off its great complexity.
Decant an hour before serving. Ideal serving temperature: 16°C
