The nose is fruity and offers a fine richness, gourmandize as well as beautiful grain very finely tight. It reveals notes of blackberry, ripe cassis and small notes of plum associated with touches of gray pepper, tea as well as hints of cornflower, liquorice stick and fine hints of nutmeg. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, aery and offers a beautiful definition, finesse, gourmandize, a beautiful racy minerality as well as a beautiful fleshy/juicy fruit/finely acidulous. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, raspberry and small notes of cherry associated with touches of plum as well as fine hints of liquorice/colas, cornflower/blue fruits and a discreet hint of vanilla. Tannins are well-built. There is a discreet hint of almond on the aftertaste. Full of gourmandize!
