Magnum Château Barrabaque Prestige...

Magnum Château Barrabaque Prestige Rouge 150cl

€30.83

Deep colour, violet tints in its youth.  The nose explodes with black fruit with spices when young moving on to red fruit notes and then truffles over time.  Lovely aromatic complexity.  Suave attack, the wine is “gourmand” in the mouth.  The tannins are fine-grained and elegant that present a wine that is very ample and well-balanced.
