The figure of Naga is associated with water and fertility; the naga can be protective, nurturing and even creative. And although they live in their own kingdom, some nagas can transform themselves to visit the world of humans in the form of a snake or a handsome young man.

Tasting notes: From tropical Indonesia to Bordeaux vineyards…
The nose is a perfect balance between the spicy notes of rum and the fruity and woody notes of the wine. In the mouth again it is the rum that we recognize first with its aromas of candied fruits. Then come the elegant tannins of this beautiful Saint Emilion 2018, these red and black fruits typical of this terroir. Finally, rum and wine are at the end of the palate where the spicy notes of one and the other blend harmoniously and leave the palate greedy cravings elsewhere.
