  • Tasting notes

    This Côtes du Rhône red has a very dark red color with purple highlights. On the nose, we can feel its power and complexity with aromas of jammy blackberries, mocha and licorice. The attack on the palate is tasty and fleshy, with lovely patinated tannins. The finish is long and marked by notes of Tonka bean and blackcurrant, leaving a pleasant memory in the mouth.
