Cuvee Prestige has an intense garnet colour, fruity and woody notes of ripe red fruits. A complex and balanced palate. The first impression is supple with vanilla aromas and sweetness due to the aging in barrels. Red fruits on the palate are present and the finish reveals a taste of liquorice. This wine is potent and complex, with a good wood-fruit balance. Good ageing potential.
