The nose is elegant, well-built, precise, racy and offers a fine complexity. It reveals notes if blackberry, cassis and fleshy Gariguette strawberry associated with fine touches of violet/lily, vanilla oak as well as a subtle hint of zan and toasted. The palate is juicy, fruity, well-balanced, racy, precise and offers a good definition, freshness, a good structure as well as a beautiful acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy cassis, juicy blackberry and more slightly crunchy strawberry associated with fine touches of fresh raspberry, toasted oak, vanilla as well as subtle touches of nut and a very discreet/imperceptible hint of tea (in the background). Tannins are well-built.
