Tasting notes:

"Nice deep black dress with purple and bright highlights, this Clos de los Siete 2012 offers a complex and sweet bouquet, with intense aromas of ripe fruit clearly reminiscent of the ripeness of the grapes that enter this wine. and of pepper do not deceive: Malbec is really the biggest element of this wine of cut! Its delicate roasted aromas are full of its aging under wood.

In the mouth, it is broad and soft. It offers tannins with velvet texture, dense and also silky that elegantly structure this bottle. It is the success of a single equilibrist challenge!

A mouth finish rich, persistent and very tasty that highlights the beautiful potential of this wine that asks only to express.

Michel Rolland
