Taste Profile & Style
Shiny and transparent pale rosé color. Delicate red berry aromas with mineral notes. A touch of floral as well as spice notes. A touch of oak adds a creamy feel and texture. Rich and racy on the palate. Firm acidity with a long and silky finish. Powerful and elegant. A classy wine. If you like the minerality of a Sancerre, you will love this…
