Last born in the Mottet Family wines, Cuvee Carpe Diem has a beautiful crimson almost black colour with intense purple tints. A powerful and complex nose of black fruits, with spicy notes and coffee aromas.
On the palate, the attack is powerful and generous. The mouth is round and full bodied. Rich tannins with a long aftertaste. Very nice ageing potential of 6 to 10 years…
