Tasting : This wine has a beautiful garnet color with bright reflections. The nose presents aromas of dried figs, quince paste, garrigue and licorice. A fine, subtle and greedy nose. On the palate, we find aromas of fresh spices (pepper) and garrigue (laurel, thyme), accompanied by a mentholated touch. An aromatic mouth with smooth and velvety tannins.
