These unique characteristics give the wines generous hints of white flowers and a balanced, refined bouquet. The 2002 vintage is a wine of surprising aromatic complexity, rich and delicate. After six years aging in the cellars, the wine is balanced, with rich and delicate. After eight years aging in the cellars, the wine is balanced, with contrasting flavours.
