Degustation notes

Dense black cherry colour, an intense bouquet of ripe cherries and cassis, spices, wood, vanilla and coconut, very dense and soft in the mouth, silky tannins, a typical presence, rather soft, a touch of Merlot with a long finish. This wine is good when young but also ages well.

    Ein sicherer Wert - Schöne Balance, denn weder Holz noch Frucht oder Tannin dominieren. Intensive fruchtige Aromen machen diesen ausgewogenen und trotz schöner Länge nicht allzu schweren St. Emilion zum Erlebnis. Darf gut noch einige Jahre im Keller vergessen werden, denn auch für den Jahrgang 2011 gilt: „Geduld bringt einen samtenen, schmeichelnden Wein ins Glas“.
