4 /5

Le vin du moment le plus reconnu dans le monde. Il connait un succès exceptionnel en Asie. Son terroir rarissime s'exprime dans le verre par une finesse ensorceleuse et une complexité grandissante avec le vieillissement. Un vin de légende.

Jag träffade honom på en provsmakning.
Röd med lila kanter. God doft av övermogen frukt. Något svalare.
Perfekt för aptitretare och förrätter.

Aromas de framboesa. Gosto da sua ligeira aspereza.
Um tinto muito bom mas com demasiado sabor a madeira.
