Winemaking and ageing
The ageing of the wine took place in barrels, of which half were new.
Cabernet Sauvignon (62%)
Petit verdot (5%).
The nose is subtle, releasing fruity (prunes) and toasted scents which mingle with woody undertones.
The palate is full-bodied and fleshy with a great depth. The finish entices with refined yet delicate tannins and its delicious licorice notes.
