Tasting Note:

Very open by Jean-Paul Versino’s standards, a floral red fruit quality that can take years of bottle age to reveal itself and the wonderful thing is the lifting, scented fresh fruit is accompanied by classic, old-fashioned Versino character. Notes of raspberry, cherry and loganberry mixed with notes of pepper, herb, earth and saddle leather. Rich, characterful and velvety.
