The nose is fruity and offers a nice structure. It reveals notes of plum, red berries/ripe cherry and slight hints of flowers associated with a subtle hint of lily/cassis bud, sweet spices and a discreet hint of vanilled oak. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a slight juiciness, a slight minerality, a slight straightness, tension, a beautiful juiciness, a slight freshness as well as finesse. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of redcurrant, cherry and slight notes of crushed cassis associated with hints of fresh raspberry, toasted oak and chocolate. Tannins are fine and well-built.
