Grand Vin de Bordeaux
At the forefront of the estate’s production, NOTARIS is an outstanding wine, perfect for laying down. Dark and dense in colour, with a complex bouquet combining notes of violet, dark fruits and spices with a hint of wood. Its fleshy and powerful mouthfeel develops into an intense fruitiness. This exceptional wine can be drunk right away but it will gain in complexity after 4 to 8 years of ageing.
Can be laid down for up to 15 years.
Open and air the wine one hour before serving at 17 °C.
