Old and mellow but lots of huge spiced fruit. The complexity of an old wine with the exuberance of a new wine.

    Excellent cru de saint emilion, tres typique et a prix raisonnable. Tres aromatique, fruits noirs et sous bois. L'elevage est discret, en bouche le vin est puissant et les tannins pas encore completement fondus. A deguster entre 2009 et 2020.
