Tasting

Discover our first cuvée, the “Heritage” in Bordeaux Supérieur. Due to the oak ageing period, this wine gains structure and intensity: a dense purple colour, fresh red fruits aromas and a subtle oaky bouquet, structured and harmonious tannins followed on the finish by light and fresh red fruits and hints of vanilla.

Wine with very good ageing capacities.

FOOD MATCHING
