There is a ripe and smoky character to this wine aged 12 months in French oak. A rich background of plums and berry fruits steadies the tannins. The wine is balanced and will be ready to drink from 2017. The Gonfrier brothers' 94 acres are certified “Haute Valeur Environmentale” (High Environmental Value).
