Tasting : This wine presents a beautiful constant and intense red dress. Its nose offers a red fruit bouquet with a cocoa note as well as a beautiful aromatic intensity. The mouth, powerful, is in perfect agreement with the nose. The flavours and savours are assembled and are complementary. Maturing in barrel as well as the concentration and the matter of this wine gave to this wine much smoothness and of elegance. Its length and its aromatic persistence are very interesting.
