On the nose, a complex bouquet unfolds, enticing you with aromas of black fruit compote, ripe plums, and cherries. Hints of exotic spices like cardamom and clove interweave with earthy notes of truffles and a touch of liquorice. As the wine opens up, captivating scents of cedar and sandalwood emerge, hinting at the oak ageing that adds depth and complexity.

The palate of the Cuvee David et Goliath is powerful and full-bodied, with a core of concentrated fruit flavours. Ripe tannins lend structure and a pleasant grip, while the use of old vine fruit ensures impressive balance.
