In the glass, this wine pours a deep magenta. Highly approachable yet traditional in character. The wine is young and lively on the nose with wild red berry overtones. Good structure and excellent balance with fine tannins and a smooth finish. *Chefs Kiss!*

Since 1875, the Rivière family diversify and develops their estates in the purest tradition of Bordeaux wines. Concerned about the quality of the wines that we produce, our vines are grown within the greatest respect of their soil. The perfect blending of grape varieties gives wines of character, elegant, authentic wines with style.
In thirty years, Jean-Pierre and Philippe Rivière built a wide territory, which is made of distinct estates which covers some of the most evocative names of Bordeaux wines.
