It is characterized by its aromas of ripe fruit and blackcurrant liqueur, with floral notes (peony and old rose).
It gives even more after 7 years of ageing, enriching itself with delicious aromas of truffles.
Racy, balanced and fleshy.
Powerful but not heavy mouthfeel, rich, complete and very tight but restrained. In this great vintage, the Cuvée Viva shows a huge potential, and should be decanted quite a long time in advance or waited a few years.
Clay and limestone
Aged for 12 months, 25% in cement vats, 75% in barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 of one wine, 1/3 of two wines).
