The nose is fruity, elegant, racy, quite fine and a bit rich. It reveals notes of violet, cornflowers, lily and hints of plum, sour cherry associated with a hint of blueberry, raspberry, blackberry as well as touches of spice, tea and a very discreet hint of clove. The palate is fruity, harmonious, sleek, racy, well-balanced and offers a nice freshness, a nice definition, a mineral frame, finesse, a beautiful matter, a good definition, fat, a good precision and good structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum and flowers (violet, lily) associated with hints of plum, raspberry as well as slight notes of tea, cardamom and (very) slight notes Zan. Good length.
