The wine is rich and smooth with pleasantly plump tannin and velvety-smooth texture.?Despite tremendous concentration, the wine remains elegant and expresses the minerality of its terroir whilst preserving lovely freshness.
The finish is extremely stylish and promises good balance for ageing.
Ageing potential: between 3 and 40 years!

It should evolve for two decades."
