It reveals notes of cassis, morello cherry and small notes of blackberry associated with small touches of very ripe red fruits, liquorice as well as very discreet hints of spices and Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful minerality, a fine tension, elegance, depthness, a good finesse of the grain, a beautiful definition / precision as well as gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of cherry associated with small touches of very ripe red berries, licorice, tonka bean / chocolate as well as discreet hints of vanilla and very discreet hints of cardamom (in the background). Tannins are well-built.
