Les Jardins 2016
Bright red colour with violet shimmer and a fresh scent of red fruits, laurel and rosemary. Soft and light on the palate, it shows pleasant young and crisp tannins, a similar freshness as in the nose, as well as a touch of lemon aromas. A true Bistro wine, which you should be enjoyed with some good friends without hesitation.
Les Jardins 2015
« Les Jardins » has a beautiful cherry color with an intense nose of red fruit (cherry, raspberry, crushed red fruit) and sweet spices. The mouth reveals a gentle and charming nature with round, soft tannins and a fresh, elegant finish.
