Now fully mature to drink. Lovely dried cherries, light tobacco aromas and flavors, medium body and soft and round texture.

Dark red. Good to medium intensity. Evolved on the border. Iodized! Reconditioned bottle. Oyster shell. Smooth on the attack, we are face to face with viticulture of a different time and its high yields. That said, this wine is not dry. Yet tannin stiffens after the second glass. The note of Iodine is equivalent to a note of rot. Serve at the tablea to bring out its good qualities but the nose is difficult. The table used to develop it but it's hard nose. No second wine, everything is there. Terroir twenty years later.
