Quick Facts

A great, modern and positively fruit-driven red Bordeaux wine, which still manages to stay vivid and interesting. For sure it possesses big fruit, but it's the natural feeling that stays with us in the long run! This is one of Silvio Denz' greatest wines, and in this beautiful vintage it shines like the stars.
