The wine has a super refine complexity of flavour from primary to tertiary with a great intensity. On palate is also concentrated yet with super soft/mellow tannins structure and the finish is endless accompained by the warming alcohol. It's on its early peak! OUTSTANDING MERLOT


Thank you for the treat @olivierfrayssinet!!!
