The nose is aromatic and offers power, finesse as well as concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, wild berries and small notes of raspberry associated with touches of Sichuan pepper, spices and slight / discreet woody hints, slight grilled hints, Zan, tonka bean, blond tobacco as well as a very discreet hint of caramelization (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, tight and offers a good definition, tension, suavity, a small fat, roundness as well as a small freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, cassis and small notes of blackberry, wild raspberry associated with small touches of small crunchy red berries, small toasted touches, chocolate, Zan / licorice, spices, nutmeg as well as an imperceptible hint of violet. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
