Tasting notes - Extract
" D'un rubis-pourpre dense, il est tannique et austère, mais élégant. Il révèle des notes de goudron, de mûre et de fleur d'acacia nuancées de doux chêne grillé. L'ensemble, moyennement corsé et très structuré, s'exprime avec subtilité malgré sa richesse. Il est indiscutablement armé pour le long terme." Source : R. Parker (10/02)
