Pretty garnet color. The wines show considerable aromatic complexity. They are also powerful with a velvety texture. Although alcohol levels very high, this was balanced by greater acidity than in 2009, which bodes well for excellent ageing potential. To be served at 17-18° with lamb with herbs or roasted prime rib accompanied by small vegetable gratins. Perfect with a cheese assortment. Ageing Capacity : 10 years
