Degustation notes

Dark purple colour, an intense, fruity nose that stands out with pleasant aromas of ripe berries combined with shades of sour cherries, noble wood and a touch of tobacco, of medium build on the palate, pleasantly ample and earthy flavours that are typical of a Margaux, sustained roasted notes and an imposing structure that gives it a rustic feel, beautiful aromas of marmalade and coffee, still somewhat young at the finish.
