The  palate  is  fruity, juicy, mineral  and  offers  a  beautiful  minerality/freshness, a fine  acidulous  frame, a  beautiful  definition, suavity, fat, tension, a good structure as  well  as a  beautiful  fine grain. On the  palate this  wine  expresses notes of  fleshy/juicy  blackberry  and  fleshy/juicy  strawberry  associated  with small  notes of  raspberry  a s well  as  small  touches of  flowers, tonka bean, ceddar wood  and  discreet  hints  of  spices (in the background).
