Description of the Wine
Deep red in color, with aromatic and spicy notes such as black pepper and fruity hints of blackcurrant, plum and blackberry. On the palate it is silky and full-bodied, its powerful tannins are gentle and soft. Its optimal maturity benefits from the medium toasting of the barrel.

Winemaker’s Comments
The Moussai line reflects the first approach towards high-end wines. Its grapes come from carefully selected plots within the La Ronciere vineyards and are vinified under the same concept of fresh wines.
