The nose is fruity, racy and offers elegance, a slight concentration, a small power as well as a certain finesse. It reveals notes of cassis, ripe cherry and small notes of blackberry associated with slight touches of juicy raspberry, chocolate and discreet hints of spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy, slightly tight and offers finesse, a slight mineral frame, a slight juiciness, a good structure, elegance, roundness, a very slight freshness as well as a fine grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, fleshy / juicy cassis and small notes of fleshy raspberry associated with slight touches of tonka bean, Ceylon tea as well as discreet hints of spices and a very discreet vanilla hint on the finish. Tannins are well-built and very slightly firm. There is a very discreet touch of vanilla on the finish. Good length. There is an imperceptible touch of minerality almost saline on the finish.
