LBV comes from one single year and one single harvest. Whereas its richer cousin, the Vintage, is bottled in the second year, this wine is bottled in the fourth year.
Smoother than the Vintage, more developed and easier to drink. It is a powerful, defiant, full-bodied and harmonious wine.

Winery Tasting Notes
Nearly opaque in colour, it is a most intense red, with deep reflections and dense legs.
Its nose is both potent and rich, full of fruit, over which there flows an aroma of mature fruit and ripe plum, with a sense of delicious chocolate, along with notes of pepper and a few other botanical suggestions.
It is very elegant on the palate, with good volume, round tannins and a very evident maturity to the fruit, it is accompanied by a light touch of anise and a delicious finish.
Cheese soufflé. Partridge with glazed shallots and artichokes. Game. Cheeses. Chocolate and red fruits desserts
After the bottle is opened it remains at its best for a further 15 to 30 days, if properly stored.
It is a wine that is not filtered and can therefore either be drunk immediately or be left forgotten in a cellar, developing further complexity.
