The nose is aromatic, elegant and offers a fine richness. It reveals notes of crushed cassis, strawberry and small notes of blackberry associated with fine touches of violet, Sichuan pepper as well as discreet hints of sweet spices, nutmeg and a very discreet hint of mild tobacco. The mouth is fruity, juicy, elegant and offers gourmandize, a good definition as well as an acidulous frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, fleshy blackberry and small notes of wild strawberry associated with small touches of red berries, violet as well as discreet hints of grey pepper and cardamom/nutmeg. Tannins are elegant.
