The nose is elegant, finely tight and offers power (in control), a fine grain, complexity and power. It reveals notes of Boysen berry, fleshy/pulpy strawberry and small notes of Badiane associated with touches of violet, small bright berries, hot gravels (almost ioded) as well as fine hints of caramelization, zan, an imperceptible hint of clove and hazelnut. The palate is fresh, mineral, racy, beautifully defined and offers gourmandize, an acidulous frame, a beautiful energy, richness, power (full of finesse), a beautiful balance (almost a small aerial side), gourmandize as well as deepness and an almost iodine racy minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy wild cassis, bright blackberryand small notes of raspberry associated with touches of bright violet plum, small black berries as well as hints of violet, lily, gravels, fine hints of caramelization, sugared mild tobacco, tonka bean, discreet hints of fresh vanilla pod and iode. Tannins are elegant, racy, plentiful, precise and structuring. A beautiful sapidity on the finish/persistence.
