The palate is fruity and offers minerality, a certain gourmandize, an acidulous frame as well as fullness and a small fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy/juicy cassis, Boysen berryand small notes of small wild fruits associated with touches of raspberry, a racy minerality, cuben pepper as well as a subtle hint of clove, tonka bean and a very discreet hint of sugared mild tobacco.
