Bright, clear cherry-red in colour. On the nose, graceful notes of spice and heather evolve to dark fruit such as blueberry and blackberry. The palate is silky, with mouth-filling tannins, all in finesse and elegance, finishing on a note of tension that reveals the freshness of aromas such as aniseed and mint. This vintage has authorized barrel ageing for the entire cuvee for the first time since this wine was created.
