The nose is fresh and offers complexity. It reveals notes of blackberry, ripe red bell pepper, cassis, small notes of racy minerality, graphite as well as notes of iris and dark chocolate. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy/acidulous frame, tension, freshness and straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/ripe blackcurrant, fleshy blackberry, small notes of ripe raspberry associated with fine touches of tonka bean, chocolate as well as discreet hints of caramelization. Tannins are racy and precise. Good length and persistence.
