It reveals notes of red berries and small notes of bigarreau cherry associated with small touches of cassis, small wild black berries as well as slight touches of scrubland, cuben pepper and very discreet hints of spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit tight, precise and offers a slight tension, a beautiful straightness, a beautiful grain, a tannic structure, a beautiful suavity, fat as well as a small mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, small wild black berries, small red berries associated with touches of black cherry, slight hints of scrubland as well as discreet hints of chocolate, Bourbon vanilla and cardamom.
