EXCELLENT: Clear, firm, polished bouquet of more black than red berries with cherry notes, as well as floral and herbaceous nuances and a little paprika. Clean, juicy, re-cut fruit, very fine tannin, nutty aromas and a hint of dark chocolate, persistent on the palate, some depth, a little herbs and pepper in the background, has some power, but remains cool, elegant style, very good, tight, extremely juicy finish.“ Vinification: Harvest of the Merlot-grapes on october 9th and of the bought organic Cabernet-Sauvignon-grapes on october 17th.
