A plot-selection cuvée from the Charbonnières locality   

Tasting

2016 – Garnet red, with a nose of wild red fruit (blackberries, raspberries, black cherries) which opens onto spices when aerated. On the palate: fleshy, mature, rounded. From nose to palate, the aromas are exactly the same, leading through to a fresh and liquorice-laced finish.

additional Information

This cuvée is a plot selection from the Charbonnieres locality.
