The nose is fruity, aromatic, fresh, mineral, elegant and offers a beautiful definition as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of strawberry, blackberry and small notes of crushed raspberry associated with fine touches of juicy violet plum, flint/gravely minerality as well as a subtle hint of spices, violet, graphite and an imperceptible hint of vanilla. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced, elegant and offers a juicy/slightly acidulous frame, a good definition, gourmandize, a fine freshness as well as minerality. On the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh blackberry, fresh raspberry and small notes of liquorice associated with fine touches of cherry, strawberry as well as fine hints of gravels, racy minerality, chocolate, vanilla as well as a subtle hint of grey pepper. Good length and persistence.
