Winemaker's Notes

Dense, profound, purple color. Full and powerful wine: There exists a good balance between the smoothness of an aromatically fruity wine and the clean tannic texture, giving thus length and silkiness to this long ageing wine. The finish is of grand precision, with an exceptional softness.

Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

    The end a bit disappointing compared to a powerful start decent but nothing outstanding
