Both a very Merlot Saint-Emilion wine, meaning intense and sensuous, and a very classic wine, meaning cool and nicely-balanced. It is when drunk with food that the full range of its qualities is best appreciated: full-bodied, velvety, without too overpowering a concentration.
A very careful sorting when harvested and wise maturing processes in barrels give it an extra noble touch. To be opened between its fourth and tenth year.
