Intense and shimmering ruby red color with a bouquet first on the barrel (toasted notes) releases the agitation of the intense aromas of jammy red fruit.
The well-balanced mouth is structured by woody and vanilla tannins which gives it good length. We can already enjoy this bottle or wait 3 to 5 years in the cellar. It is a wine for keeping which will accompany a leg on a spit or other dishes in sauce. As this wine is unfiltered, decanting a few hours before serving is recommended.
