Degustation notes

Dense dark purple colour, a fine, delicate bouquet, richly varied, accompanied by notes of blackberries and cherries with a hint ofmint and toasted, nuances of eucalyptus, a very fine wine, very ample on the palate, fleshy, reminiscent of dark chocolate, an expanded texture and beautiful elegance, very concentrated with perfect tannins.

With histhree domains; L'Hospitalet, the Villemajou and Laville Bertrou, he's at the forefront of the appellations.

    Ein äusserst fruchtig betonter Cigalus. Wie immer mit feinen Eukalyptusaromen. Auf alle Fälle ein Trinkgenuss besonderer Art. Die Haltbarkeit ist schwieriger einzuschätzen. Mal sehen, was die Zukunft bringt.
