Notes on the 2019 vintage
A layered blackberry red with polished, relatively fine tannins that integrate well. Lots of terroir character. The wine is medium to full-bodied. Lots of character.
Starting with the 2019 vintage, we have implemented anti-counterfeiting protection. The QR trace security system of MSP-SAS reinforces security and traceability, thanks to the integration of new security features and authentications, unique per bottle.
EACH SEAL IS UNIQUE
The MSP-SAS QR trace security is a self-adhesive polymer label with iridescent relief. It is affixed directly to the back of each bottle of Château Balestard La Tonnelle under the back label.
Authentication is very simple in the mobile version by flashing the 2D code on the seal, which takes the user to the platform inviting him to check the ID code and the iridescent embossed code unique to each bottle, present on the QR code security MSP-SAS. The platform then tells him if the bottle is authentic or not.
