The nose offers a slight concentration. It reveals notes of blackberry, bulb / varietal notes and small notes of ripe small black fruits associated with hints of small red fruits, violet as well as a very discreet hint of Zan and an imperceptible hint of gray pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers minerality, slight tension as well as precision. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, wild berries, bulb / varietal associated with slight touches of cassis bud, small red fruits / red berries as well as hints of liquorice, toasted hints / chocolats. Tannins are slightly mellow.
