Sommelier's Notes

Ruby hue, with purplish reflection in youth. The notes of red fruits are very concentrated, behind them develop a wide range of aromas including vanilla and leather with aging in barrels.



The three main varieties of the appellation come together and complement each other to magnify the whole. Merlot brings fruity, when Cabernet Sauvignon gives tannins and Cabernet Franc spicy notes.


Age of the vine: 40 Years


Ageing potential: Can be kept 20 years


Culinary Recommendation: To serve at 17 C. Good match with Red meats, game.
