dark red, purple tints; has a strawberry jam aroma offers a joli, real cosy curve, comes out frankly. This has a good, firm attack, holds dark red, mulberry fruit with life in it, and a late saline note. There’s crunch in the tannins – this is 50% whole bunch – and it’s very drinkable, shows a touch of late power, is good for la table. Its length sustains on red fruit, raspberry, is good and upbeat. 14°. To 2022 Dec 2019


fine red robe. Has an attractive, open nose with a compact aroma of red cherry, raspberry. The palate holds supple fruit, likewise texture; it is good and round, tasty and drinkable, w.o.w. wine. There is licorice at the end. It has character. 13.5°. 100% destemmed. To 2019 Oct 2015
