Big, rich and sexy, this is almost too easy to love. The aromatics are intense, with dried flowers, baked blackberries and sandalwood. The palate is full-bodied and expansive, with layer after unfolding layer of red and black fruit, earthy accents, and floral incense. Don’t stop at a single bottle, this magical Bordeaux has decades of tricks up its sleeve and you’ll want to keep coming back for more.
