Tasting notes

A deep red color. The bouquet, notes of toast, coffee, vanilla and leather on ripened black berries. On the palate, a full-bodied wine, rich with hints of spice, fleshy but not excessively, well developed tannins with a long finish.

Round and beautifully clear. The nose is deep and deliciously fruity with hints if lightly toasted wood. On the palate corpulant, powerful and concentrated.

"Love the finish on this wine with bright berry and milk chocolate character. Medium to full body, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Why Wait?"

Impressive for this appellation, with ripe fruit and light espresso character with hints of mushrooms. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long flavourful finish. Best ever from here.

Médaille d'Or Concours de Bordeaux - Vins d'Aquitaine 2013.

88/90 Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Plenty of black currant and black cherry fruit as well as underlying forest floor and floral notes. The purity, textural build up and intensity exceed the appellation's standards.

15,5/20 Jancis Robinson
Black, Luscious and obviously very well cared for.

91-92 James Suckling
Lots of chocolate and toasted oak with hints of coffee. Full and velvety. Long finish.
