The nose is fruity/aromatic and offers power, elegance, deepness and a fine grain. It reveals notes of blackberry, violet and small notes of violet plum associated with fine touches of wild strawberry, hints of cornflower, black tea and very discreet hints of sweet spices/green cardamom. The mouth is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful grain and a fine tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of plum, violet, acidulous blackberry and small notes of wild raspberry associated with touches of cornflower, camphor as well as a subtle hint of tobacco. A very discreet hint of cocoa and sweet spices on the persistence. Tannins are elegant and racy.
