The palate is full, suave, gourmand, precise and offers a beautiful fat, a fine unctuosity, an acid fram, a good freshness, dynamism, a fine tension, volume, a good definition as well as a small straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, cassis and more slightly fleshy red berries associated with small touches of toasted oak, caramelization, vanilla as well as a hint of toasted almond, cocoa. Tannins are fine, elegant and slightly tight. Good fruity/acidulous persistence.
