The palate is fruity, well-balanced, mineral, gourmand and offers a fine fleshiness, a fresh frame, a beautiful fleshy fruit, complexity, a beautiful grain as well as a beautiful and ample / voluminous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, fleshy blackberry and small notes of ripe / fleshy wild strawberry associated with touches of juicy blueberry, crushed red cherry, a subtle hint of black tea as well as very discreet touches of cornflower, Zan, caramelized oak and hazelnut (in the background).
