Tasting notes

Orned with a beautiful purple color, limpid, with ruby reflections, its bouquet is floral and fruity. Imbued with violet, praline liquorice and forest fruits, it reveals notes of peppermint. The palate is expressed by a nectar with elegant, very fine and perfectly integrated tannins. Black and spicy fruits dominat. The finish is long, supported by a nice freshness characteristic of the high altitude terroir of the domain. Very good balance and aging potential for more than 15 years. To decant at least 1 hour.
WineEnthusiat: rated 95 points.
