Aromas of blackberries, cassis and fennel, with resonating layers of forest floor and cedarwood, harmoniously integrated in a focused, delicately textured palate. Lively and complex and long aftertaste. 52% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon. Matured on 225 liter French oak for 18 months. Ageing potential of at least 15 years from vintage!
Enjoy with baked or grilled red meat or ground game, with spicy sauces.
