Winemaker's Notes: "Beautiful deep red color with violet hues. The wine is limpid and brilliant. The nose is very open, expressive. On black fruits with first nose and sweet spices (nutmeg, cinnamon). The second nose is sweeter with hints of blackberry jelly that give a lot of gluttony and invite to the mouth. A hint of caramel too, slightly vanilla. The attack on the palate is supple, roundness. The tannins present and of great finesse are characteristic of this vintage. The aromas are those of the nose and confirm the greedy impression. A pleasant wine that will wait 2 to 3 years in the cellar before being served on an Osso-Bucco or a pigeon."
