A beautifully rich wine made from perfectly ripened grapes.The personality of this wine is expressed in its colour a beautiful deep garnet with slightly bricktints and its generous bouquet with earthy notes and jammy, red-berried fruit. After the smooth palate with its crunchy extract, the finish brings out the spicy tannins typical of Mdoc wines.
An earthy nose with plum and blackcurrent, the palate is generous with soft tannins, plum and blackcurrent fruit showing developed notes of tobacco and leather.
