It reveals notes of crushed blackberry, very ripe cassis and small notes of ripe strawberry associated with fine touches of violet, small berries, liquorice, spices and discreet hints of chocolate. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers suavity, an acid frame as well as a good freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of black berries associated with small touches of very ripe strawberry, spices, small toasted touches as well as a very discreet touch of licorice and cardamom.
