This classic Left Bank Bordeaux-style blend begins with powerful scents of flowers, blackberry, ripe wild berries, and baking spices. The Une Vallée is a full-bodied wine that offers layers of seductive ripe black cherry and red berry fruit flavors with silky tannins that lead to a wonderfully smooth finish.
