Dark cherry colour. Complex, mineral, intense and persistent nose. At the beginning more into the organic and dark side, liquorice aromas of the Tempranillo, followed up with red berries and apricots. There is always a minerality and complexity. Elegant and balanced in the mouth from the beginning. Intense texture and structure, smooth and mature tannins, with a clear aftertaste which is fruity and expressive.
Production of 6.000 Burgundy bottles of 0,75cl.
