Region: Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France
Varietal: 60% Merlot & 40% Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: Beautiful deep purple color with brilliant reflections. The nose gives vanilla notes, due to aging in barrels, mixed with aromas of ripe red fruits. The wine also gives us to feel roasted and cocoa aromas. On the palate, the attack is supple. The wine has a nice roundness and a superb balance. On the finish, balanced tannins and freshness. This vintage is superb and has nothing to envy to its big brother.
