Intense bouquet that brings to mind jelly made from fruits of the forest (bilberries) and sweet spice.
Good concentration in the mouth with delicious tannins that highlight the wines rich fruit that has become more complex following ageing in the barrel.
On the whole, an unctuous wine with a pleasant fullness that lingers on the pallet with a depth of refined toasted notes.
A very elegant wine with superb potential for development.
A splendid bottle to marry with savoury fish dishes such as fresh tuna in spicy tomato sauce, refined delicatessen products (chorizo, salami), all kinds of beef (roasted, stewed or grilled), foie gras, duck, partridge, game ad mature cheese.
