The nose is fruity, power, well-built and offers a beautiful grain, elegance and expression. It reveals notes of ripe cassis, wild cassis and small notes of ripe strawberry associated with fine touches of cornflower, crushed ripe redcurrant as well as discreet hints of nutmeg/spices. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy frame, minerality, density as well as tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, juicy cassis and small notes of juicy raspberry associated with fine touches of small crushed red berries as well as a subtle hint of cornflower, local vegetation and moka. Good length. Tannins are elegant and structuring.
