Review

The Reserve X XII XV is made up of 7 grape varieties: Garnacha, Vaccarèse, Counoise, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Terret noir and Muscardin. On the glass side, this wine has an originality and a strong personality. In notes of black fruit such as blackberry, chocolate and rocks on the nose. The palate is smooth and deep with pleasant and fine tannins. A great wine far from its peak, but that already brings many pleasures and sensations.
