It's the closest thing that exists in the country to a Burdeos wine. It’s expansive on nose, very fruity, peering blackberry and raspberry marmalade, slightly impregnated oak notes, with sensations of liquorice and toast, remembering bread and almonds, and spices: cloves and bay leaf. That complexity extends to the palate: prune jam, sweet, sweet indeed, yet bitter, quite bitter, taste ore, cocoa, leather and subtle tannins... The top, fills the palate. Substantiality and balanced refinement.
Mainly consists of cabernet sauvignon. And merlot and cabernet franc grapes from the estate Villa Les Arnes of Agulladolç. Has spent 18 months in oak Tronçais barrels. Bottled in July 2008. Very limited production: 1,212 bottles.
