(From 2011 Vintage) Bright red-ruby. Nobler on the nose than the Altagracia, displaying scents of currant, licorice and tobacco lifted by a sexy floral topnote. Broad and supple in the mouth, but with lovely definition and power to the flavors of plum, currant, brown spices and brown sugar.
(From 1995 Vintage) Winemaker Francoise Peschon describes the wine as: delicious, opulent, smooth and seamless, with layered flavors of cassis, plum, toffee and spice that coat the palate, followed by an exceptionally long spicy finish. While bursting with fruit, it is impressive in its harmony, balance, and elegance. It should age gracefully for 20 years or more.
