"Chateau Sixtine was created to live, grow, evolve over time without the years altering its depth and finesse. Jewel of eternal pleasure and magic, this wine is a complete fusion with the terroir, grape varieties, and breeding.
At first glance, the wine is a dark, deep, brilliant crimson colour. The dense nose offers pure, intense dark berry and undergrowth aromas. On the palate, the mellow, well-integrated wood adds an unrivalled silkiness. The well-balanced tannin structure, the precision and just the right balance of fruit give this wine its full personality. Its delicate, subtle scents lead you to a delightfully long, fresh finish. The silkiness of the wine dominates throughout the tasting. A jewel of a wine." - Winery
