The palate is fruity, well-balanced, juicy, mineral, fine and offers tension, a fine fat, a beautiful mineral frame, freshness as well as a beautiful juiciness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy raspberry, ripe / fleshy cherry and small notes of cassis, blackberry associated with touches of olive, laurel, racy minerality as well as discreet toasted hints, vanilla and licorice. Tannins are finely firm and (very) slightly dry. There are small touches of cocoa on the finish / persistence. There is a very discreet touch of almond on the aftertaste.
