Commentary

Sight: Deep, intense, crimson red.

Smell: The bouquet is more subtle, fresher and fruitier than the Fombrauge.

Taste: This is a delicious wine, rich in fruit and tannins but subtle. Full-flavored, it also has a long, powerful, fleshy, but also aromatic finish. A wine for laying down.

Grape variety

60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc
