This wine comes from the oldest plot of the vineyard (70% Tannat and 30% Merlot) which give us few grapes but lots of aromatic concentration. Ageing in cask takes place over 18 months. This wine is highly aromatic, with a smooth, well structured body and elegant tannins. Dark violet and dark berries, dominate, the complex struture of this brilliant wine.
Black, meaty and appealing on the nose. There are complex aromas of ripe red fruit mixed with notes of wood. The palate is soft and has round, voluptuous tannins resulting in a good balance and fantastic length.
The nose has jasmine tea notes with white pepper held together by a fine sandy structure. On the palate there are bright floral and mineral nuances with a lingeringly spicy, ginger and exotic finish. A hugely and broadly appealing and accessible Gewürz.
