The nose is fruity and offers power and a fine grain. It reveals notes of ripe cassis, ripe strawberry and small notes of violet associated with touches of blackberry as well as a subtle hint of lilac, grey pepper as well as toasted oak. The mouth is fruity, juicy, mineral and offers a good definition, a fine gourmandize as well as finesse. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of acidulous/juicy cassis, juicy/acidulous blackberry and small notes of violet associated with fine touches of juicy blueberry, juicy raspberry as well as hints of tonka bean and toasted. Bonne longueur.
