Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Totally opaque black crimson color with deep dark crimson red hue. The nose shows lifted notes of violets and blackcurrant followed by some dark mulberry, tobacco, earthy cedar and light spice. Mid weight with elegant and refined flavors of dark mulberry, cedar, earthy tobacco and spice. Fine grained, yet dry dusty tannin structure. Medium to long aftertaste of dark ripe mulberry, earthy tobacco and spicy cedar.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) The first vintage made by the Simon Halabi family with great ambitions, this wine reveals a beautiful deep colour. The nose is fresh and has hints of black fruits. The mouth is very dense, with a brilliant fruit, it has notes of toasted bread. It is spicy and full, tannins are fine and dense. The final is long and fruity. The very severe selection (only 30% of the parcels have been selected to be part of the blend of the Grand Cru Class this year), the several weeks long harvest, with the decision to wait for the perfect maturity of the last parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, the harvest in several times on a few parcels, all of that give to this wine the length and the quality of construction, with “melted following sensations.
