The nose is aromatic, racy and offers gourmandize, intensity as well as finesse, a small freshness and delicacy. It reveals notes of fleshy wild cassis, Boysen berry, small notes of strawberry associated with touches of violet, plum as well as hints of spices, nutmeg. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a fresh frame, juiciness, minerality as well as freshness, delicacy, a good definition, a beautiful fat and harmony. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy/juicy cassis, pulpy blackberry, small notes of red berries associated with touches of pulpy strawberry, liquorice, chocolat, mild tobacco as well as fine hints of violet, rose and very fine hints of toasted (in the background). Tannins are well-built, elegant, precise and justly firm. Good length. Subtle hints of caramelization, toasted almond and chocolate on the persistence.
