With vines situated on the slopes above the Garonne River, this Terra Vitis bottling is rich and spicy, full of blackberry fruits and still young acidity. Sixty percent Merlot gives it its smooth character although it is the Cabernet Franc that adds its subtle perfumes. The wine will need time and should be ready to drink from 2020.
