The nose is fruity, precise and offers a small straightness as well as elegance. It reveals notes of fleshy cassis, fleshy blackberry and small notes of violet associated with touches of crushed blueberries, liquorice as well as slight hints of liquorice, spices, roasted and a very discreet hint of scrubland (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, a small suavity, a fine freshness, gourmandise as well as a small straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of bigarreau cherry, fleshy cassis and small notes of sour cherry, blueberries associated with slight touches of licorice, chocolate as well as slight hints of sweet spices / vanilla. Good length. Tannins are fine and slightly firm.
