Unique terroir

L’expression d’un terroir unique

Bottled in truly exceptional years, it is a wine designed so that the legacy and magic of this vineyard will last for the next decades.

Factsheets

Tasting notes

Bright citrine color. Intense and very elegant aroma, with a predominance of diverse citrus notes, such as lime and grapefruit. In the mouth, it is complex, deep, and structured, with lively acidity, but very well integrated, which gives it great freshness and persistence. With a long aftertaste, minerality persists, with some notes of dried fruit and a slightly smoked. A wine with great aging potential.
