Tasting notes

Château Mazeyres’s second wine has a vivid colour. Very open and airy on the nose, dominated by forest fruit aromas. Slightly tart in the attack, then revealing huge smoothness with a certain tonic touch. This very vibrant wine has a silky texture, very present fruit, and a subtle, unique touch of smokiness.
