Reviews of Jean Leon Vinya Le Havre 2011
Mixture of red and brown colour. The smell of violets was so strong that it seemed curious to me. This red is lasting, it has a long aftertaste.
I recommend to pair it with "Pinchos" or "Tapas".
Eye-catching cherry colour with a low layer. Characteristic nuts notes. It tasted like wood.
