Cuvée Louis Fabre - Côtes de Provence AOP

The robe is black. Nose of red fruits on a slightly vanilla background. There is a great concentration of aroma which requires a slight aeration by carafing for it to express itself.

On the palate, the concentration is confirmed as much in the aromas as in the balance. Very well-structured wine with silky and generous tannins, embedded in a material that covers the entire palate.

It is better to wait a few years to soften it and express all its potential.
