THE VINTAGE
This vintage is considered exceptional. The winter was mild and dry while the spring was cool and the summer hot. The grapes have reached full maturity. The reds are crisp, frank, intense with complex aromas of raspberry, garrigue, liquorice, candied ginger and black fruits. They present a dark and dense and complex color and fine tannins. The 2016 vintage has a very long aging potential.

TASTING NOTES

Beautiful ruby red color, with slightly bluish reflections.
Intense and complex nose: small candied red berries, mocha and sage. The palate is full and smooth from the start, with good volume, sweetness and a nice touch of silky tannins. On the palate we find the aromatic notes of the nose, with a touch of liquorice and hints of vanilla pod. The finish is delicately spicy for a nice sensation of freshness and tension. A beautiful terroir wine: rich, expressive, racy and elegant.
