(From 1996 Vintage) Immensely rich with striking blackcurrant flavours, a firm tannic structure and a long, long finish.
(From 2007 Vintage) Deep, intense, opaque ruby red. The nose reveals a generous and powerful bouquet of blackberries, ripe cassis, licorice and violets, with mineral hints and fine notes of vanilla, coffee, black pepper, incense and dark chocolate. The mouth shows an outstanding balance, full of density, life, roundness and savors. The ripe, silky, concentrated and enrobed tannins give to the wine an incomparable voluptuous texture, as the evolution leaves an impression of plenitude and harmony. An extraordinary complex and powerful wine, full-bodied, persistent and layered, perfectly balanced by a great acidity.
