Good depth of colour with a restrained, elegant nose.
Perfumes of dark cherry and liquorice give way to spice and plums on the palate.
Nicely rounded tannins from the Sangiovese are lifted by the cassis concentration of the Cabernet and melt into a long, perfumed finish.
20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

A superb Sauvignon Blanc.
Very pale yellow in colour with greenish hues at the edges.
On the nose, it has great intensity. Subtle aromas of green asparagus, lemon and mandarin with tomato leaf notes and a few mineral characteristics.
Its wonderful elegance does not contradict its aromatic concentration which could be due to a colder season in the zone.
In the mouth the wine is very complete since it has a highly stimulating taste with a persistent natural acidity.
It has a perfect balance of roundness that allows it to maintain its freshness. In general, an excellent wine.
100% Sauvignon Blanc.

The nose is lifted with perfumed red berries, violets and wild blackberry fruit coming from the Petit Verdot. The palate is medium bodied and restrained in style with tight dense fruit and a modulated structure showing balance and depth of fruit, flowing onto a long finish of chewy tannins. This is a compact but deeply flavoured Tally. 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot.

Expressive blackberry fruit, quite ripe and juicy but combined with characteristic complex and earthy Gevrey terroir flavours.

The Kraft Sauvignon Blanc is pale straw in colour with vibrant green melon, fresh ripe pineapple and subtle passion fruit aromas, which are complimented by delicate florals. The palate is round with crisp fruit flavours; grapefruit, honeydew melons and the varietally characteristic green herbaceous tones. The clean fruit flavours are enhanced by refreshing lemon citrus and crisp acidity leaving a lingering and satisfying finish. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Once the fruit was crushed and drained through a press tank, the free-run juice was cold-settled for 48 hours, before being racked off gross lees. To ensure crispness and freshness...
