Note : 81 / 100 Robe pourpre soutenu. Le nez associe fruits rouges et noirs mûrs et notes toastées. La bouche est généreuse, puissante. Attaque polie sur le fruit, légère touche d'amertume finale où l'on retrouve l'influence du bois. Deep crimson. A mix of ripe red and black fruits and toasted notes on the nose. The palate is generous and powerful. Polished, fruit-forward entry, faint hint of bitterness on the finish revealing oak influence.
