The nose is fruity, gourmand, slightly fleshy and offers richness. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and slight notes of ripe/crushed strawberry associated with discreet hints of ripe plum, chocolate/oak as well as a subtle toasted hint and a very discreet/imperceptible hint of pepper. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a beautiful fat, a beautiful freshness, a nice minerality, silky, a slight tension as well as suavity.
