Deep ruby red in colour. The nose is typical of this parcel of Ruffe with its aromas of garrigue. Aromas of garrigue (wild aniseed, broom) but also cherries in alcohol, vanilla and truffle. An elegant, well-balanced palate with fine, silky, and persistent tannins.
As always, the natural freshness of this wine is exceptional, with red berry fruit, truffle, garrigue plus tobacco leaf, cigar, toasted bread, blackberry, and fig, that together create a wonderful harmony. A 2018 vintage Rare Cuvee that is ready to drink now or can happily be cellared for many more years.
