Wine Characteristics : « Les Pruliers » display a strong color. Young, it imposes its personality. Fresh red fruit aromas mingle with fine plant fragrances evoking wild prunes as well as notes of licorice and spiced roses. Mature, depth and roundness mask a strict final frame. You will perceive aromas of cocoa, smoked meat, and undergrowth. Age brings forth a generous and sensual smoothness.
