Tasting notes
Rich green gold in color, this wine has opulently fragrant and very expressive aromas. The palate is powerfully structured, with thrilling fruit concentration and magnificent length. Finesse, complexity and elegance.
Food and wine pairings
Ideal with sophisticated food and complex textures: foie gras, caviar, lobster, firm white flesh fish such as Lotte and lean meat like veal and chicken served in a buttery and creamy sauce.


"Rich and full-bodied, but very nicely contained. Great volume and generosity, exotic on the vigorous and persistent finish. Balanced with good freshness. Tension and power."
