This wine’s elegance and fruitful presence perfectly displays the vintage’s Atlantic influence. In the nose, it offers freshness and a sharp minerality highlighting its complexity. On the palate, you experience excellence structure that is both round and sweet, with silky and persistent tannins, perfectly merged with the acidity and alcohol. It's a complex and long wine that keeps its presence in the mouth, exhibiting a wide range of flavors. Wonderful aging potential, especially after its third year in the bottle, and might be better when decanted before consumption. Pairs well with game, roasted lamb, stews and mature cheeses.

Opaque ruby. Smoky, mineral-accented cherry and dark berries on the deeply perfumed nose. Palate-coating black and blue fruit flavors pick up violet pastille and mocha nuances with air. Fleshy and densely packed but lively too, finishing with noteworthy power and persistence and harmonious tannins.-JR
