Between "Grands Cru" and more modest appellations, these blends show a particular authenticity. Attractive, bright colour, ripe fruit nose with spicy, mineral hints. Soft, well integrated tannins on the palate with pleasant aromas of red berries supported by good body, which will enable it to be laid down for about 10 years.
