Wine Description

(1996 Vintage) The darkest red colour of all. On the nose, the wine is sharp, as if it were "double-locked" in its tannic coating (gangue). The "enigmatic" character of this wine finds its full expression in this wine, even if we detect some hints of liquorice typical of La Tâche. Great potential, reserved, its length and "thickness" on the palate announce interesting developments ... if you are patient enough to wait!
