The nose is fruity, elegant, precise and offers a slight power, straightness as well as a slight complexity. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, cassis and small notes of ripe raspberry, blueberry associated with toasted touches / sweet spices, pepper as well as a discreet hint of vanilla. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful juiciness, suavity, precision, straightness as well as a beautiful acidulous frame and gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, blackberry and small notes of raspberry, black cherry associated with touches of acidulous cassis, discreet hints of redcurrants, discreet toasted hints, vanilla as well as a very discreet hint of menthol and flowers (in the background). Beautiful finish! There are a hint of almond, a toasted hint as well as a discreet hint of cedar, sap and an imperceptible hint of pepper on the finish. Tannins are fine, elegant and well-built.
