Nice cherry color. Very expressive nose with aromas of mocha, black cherry, tobacco associated to a toasted note and balsamico. In the mouth it is very open, unctuous and mineral, with lots of plum and red fruit flavors. It is a blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is aged for 16 months in 35% new Allier barrels and the rest in one and two year old Allier barrels.
