The nose is fruity and offers a fleshy/juicy fruit and a racy minerality. It reveals notes of ripe/juicy cassis, jicy blackberry and small notes of juicy small red berries associated with a hint of raspberry, violet, grey pepper as well as very discreet hints of sweet spices. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers juiciness, an acidulous frame, a good definition and a fine tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy/ripe raspberry, juicy blackberry and small notes of juicy/ripe cassis associated with fine touches of cornflower, strawberry, lilac as well as very discreet hints of ripe almond and a very discreet hint of mild tobacco. Tannins are elegant, fine and well-built.
