The nose is aromatic, elegant, racy and offers power, a beautiful complexity, a beautiful texture, freshness as well as a small concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and more slightly small wild fruits associated with fine touches of almond, fresh lilac/lily, toasted, vanilla, gray pepper as well as an imperceptible hint of fresh cocoa. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, mineral, racy and offers tension, a beautiful delicacy, a beautiful fat, a bit aerial, a good freshness as well as a beautiful finesse. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, wild blackberry and crushed/fresh raspberry associated with fine/discreet touches of fresh small fruits, spices, violetn a hint of black pepper as well as discreet hints of sweet spices/vanilla and an imperceptible hint of toasted oaky (in the background). Tannins are very fine, slightly tight and slightly chewy. There are discreet hints of nut, vanilla and chocolate on the finish/persistence. Very Beautiful persistence.
