Winemaker's Notes

Red wine with cherry color. A generous fruity that expresses itself from the attack on a suave and exuberant mouth and seduces you with its aromas of red fruits and its freshness. Long finish on the cherry core for this Cru franc and straight texture by smooth, almost melted tannins.
