Tasting note

Our Chiroubles 2013 has a beautiful structure and a good attack on the palate. This wine presents the qualities of the vintage 2013 : after few months of aging in the bottles, beautiful tannins confer roundness to the wine. The result is well-balanced and well-built. The aromas of red fruits and cherry are present but we can also find black fruits aromas like blackberry. On the finish, spicy notes and a beautiful length.
