The comment of our oenologist

This base red wine is already a masterpiece. Easy to drink, one can enjoy its substance: flavorful, structured and essential. For the nose, it seems a wine from the Bourgogne, but one of the rich and mature vintages. Important minerals in the mouth in contrast with great density, perfectly dynamic for a stimulating drinking experience.
