Tasting note
Clear sample of an intense ruby red with garnet textures.
Intense explosion of perfumes. Notes of black cherry syrup, macerated berries, hints of medicinal herbs, cigar box and sandalwood.
The taste is full, rich, with important tannins, but perfectly balanced. Freshness is a dominant note as is its long persistence which invite to a new sip. A long aging wine. It is recommended with an ancient mustard fillet.
