Expert.pngWhat experts say

16/20 "Great success for this rich and complex wine, showing red and black fruits with empyreumatic and mineral notes. The palate is round and powerful, built on a nice balance, roundness and freshness. The tannins are melted and the finish, like the rest, is elegant."

Gold Medal at Concours de Bordeaux 2015
