Grapes: 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Color: Ruby hue, with purplish reflection in youth.
Nose: The notes of red fruits are very concentrated, behind them develop a wide range of aromas including vanilla and leather with aging in barrels.
Taste: The three main varieties of the appellation come together and complement each other to magnify the whole. Merlot brings fruity, when Cabernet Sauvignon gives tannins and Cabernet Franc spicy notes.
This Merlot-dominant cuvée seems to have fun on your palate as the fine texture of the fruit seems to dance on the tongue and then better colonize the whole, without the slightest heaviness. A harmonious vintage, offering here a prospect of obvious charm and sensuality. The whole, raised in wood with brio.
