The nose is beautifully fine, velvety, aromatic, gourmand and offers a beautiful delicacy, a beautiful freshness, a very slight concentration as well as a beautiful elegance. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, raspberry, cranberry and small notes of crushed red berries associated with touches of blueberry, violet as well as very discreet hints of tarweed (Madia), camphor, sweet spices, licorice and tobacco. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a very beautiful juiciness, a beautiful suavity, a very beautiful delicacy, a very slight tension as well as a superb finesse and an acid frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed cassis, crunchy strawberry and small notes of juicy cranberry, juicy raspberry associated with small touches of plum, violet, thyme, discreet hints of tonka bean, sweet spices, chocolate as well as an imperceptible touch of caramelization, cardamom and sap on the finish. Tannins are elegant. There are a very discreet hint of cocoa and a very discreet hint of flowers on the finish / persistence.
