The nose is aromatic, fresh, racy and offers a fine concentration as well as a small power. It reveals notes  of cassis and ripe/crunchy wild berries associated with fine touches of cornflower, racy minerality, blue fruits as well as discreet touches of zan, toasted oak and discreet hints of sweet spices. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers unctuosity, gourmandize, fat, a fine acid frame, a good structure, suavity, a good definition, a good volume as well as a beautiful freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, wild raspberry and fleshy small wild berries associated with fine touches of fleshy cassis, cornflower, zan, a very fine touches of cornflower/lily as well as very discreet hints of caramelization, nut, spices and a subtle hint of chocolate. Tannins are fine, well-built and very slightly tight. There is a fine touch of chocolate/tonka bean on the finish/persistence. The persistence is slightly powdered.
