Tasting notes

The generous bouquet reveals crunchy, fresh, red fruit aromas and fine, delicately smoked oak. The wine is supple and round on the attack. The unctuous tannins impart good volume on the palate and well-balanced structure. The relatively long, savoury and fresh finish expresses the elegance of the Rahoul terroir.
