Presentation :

A “micro-cuvée”, 100% barrels, with a good cellaring potential. A rigorous selection of the upper plots of the vineyard. A deep black cherry color with purple hints. The nose is powerful with delicate black fruit aromas and a light touch of floral notes. The mouth-feel is voluptuous, well-balanced, with a good length and silky tannins. The finish is persistent, on toasted aromas.
