The Long Dai Marselan has a nose that is initially imbued with subtle black fruit notes, such as blueberry, which quickly give way to spicy notes of nutmeg and liquorice. As the wine is aerated, it reveals floral scents of hawthorn and violet, which are emblematic of the Marselan grape grown in the Long Dai terroir. On the palate, the wine is concentrated and dominated by black fruit flavors, with blueberry and blackberry notes followed by roasted and cocoa notes. The wine is finely structured by rich and elegant tannins that support a good length on the palate. This wine is a perfect example of the winery's dedication to producing high-quality wines that showcase the unique terroir of the Long Dai region. It is a wine that is both complex and elegant, and it is sure to be a hit with wine lovers who appreciate wine with depth and character.
