The nose is fruity, slightly powerful and offers concentration, a certain fleshiness as well as roundness. It reveals notes of blueberry cream, cassis and slight notes of crushed wild strawberry associated with a hint of cornflower, Zan as well as slight / very discreet hints of spices and menthol (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, slightly powerful and offers a beautiful mineral frame, a slight gourmandise, a beautiful tension, straightness, a slight suavity as well as juiciness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy blueberry and touches of cassis associated with a discreet touch of tobacco, Zan, subtle touches of juicy red berries, juicy raspberry as well as hints of dark chocolate, toasted oak, vanilla and a very discreet hint of almond on the finish. Tannins are very slightly firm and young.
