The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful wines with very pure aromas. Aged in French oak for 11 months.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of red berries mixed with liquorice and an hint of chocolate on toffees and a delicate vanilla note. Generous, powerful, with a velvety texture. Well-shaped oak note. Refined and well-integrated tannins. Good persistence.
