Degustation notes

Intense dark ruby colour, a typical bouquet of red fruit, lavender and caramel, complex, opens slowly, evenly coated in the mouth,with strong tannins and supported fruit flavours, a wine that has depth and elegance in the style of a Châteauneuf-du-Pape, long inthe mouth and balanced; excellent.
