  • What the experts say...

    (...) Ses excellents arômes de mûre et de cerise mâtinés de grillé, de noix rôtie et de vanille précèdent en bouche un ensemble moyennement corsé, dense et admirable de concentration, qui révèle des flaveurs modérément intenses de chêne épicé, ainsi que des tannins doux.
