Tasting notes:
Deep color, glistening. Very complex smell of blue fruit (blueberry, blackcurrant), ripe red fruit, cocoa and woody (slightly bread crust) in total harmony. Greedy. Attack on tannins with a very nice texture. Mid-palate is characterized by a rise finesse, fruity notes, beautiful sweetness that gives momentum to this wine. Complexity and length as a great Saint Emilion.
