A rich, complex, nutty and fragrantly fruity wine. In its clear glass bottle, with the classic Belle Epoque design, it is both outstanding and a stand-out. Finely balanced, with soft fruit showing through the acidity, this is a wine which will age over many years, but is certainly enjoyable to drink now.
