Intense ruby-red color with brilliant purple highlights. A very delicate, generous nose rich in aromas of forest fruits such as cherry, blueberry, blackcurrant and cranberry, mingled with spicy notes of black pepper and rosemary, as well as subtle aromas of cedar imparted by oak ageing. Starts off very elegant and subtle, with incredible richness on the mid-palate, along with good structure and body, and well-balanced acidity. The texture is delicate and velvety. Reveals a long, well-balanced finished marked by aromas of red berries and a return to notes of black pepper. A wine characterized by elegance and finesse with excellent ageing potential. Pair with pan fried duck breast with black tea and figs or fillet of beef with pan fried foie gras, cranberries and mushrooms.
A medium-bodied red with aromas of black plum, coconut, tar and walnut. Fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Juicy and energetic finish.

Elegant, with good cut to the ripe berry, roasted plum and dark cherry flavors that are matched to plenty of dark chocolate and mocha notes. Ends with herbal accents on the finish. Drink now through 2025.
