This wine is produced in the region of Côte-du-Rhone, Crozes Hermitage.
Almost creamy, this wine opens with ripe black and red berries. As the wine breathes, the sweet spices (nutmeg and cinnamon) so typical of this cuvée intensify their presence. Then the careful élevage reveals itself, with soft, smooth vanilla pod, cocoa cream and cedar notes. A light empyreumatic touch enhances the complexity. The aromatic profile is a blend of indulgence and smoothness.
The palate is full, smooth and silky. The well-integrated tannins support the whole and give a long finish. This tribute cuvee will keep its promise and a bright future is assured.
