The nose is fruity, elegant, well-balanced, racy and offers a beautiful definition. It reveals notes of black cherry, fleshy plum, small notes of wild blackberry and small touches of liquorice, crushed red cherry combined with discreet hints of crushed red berries, liquorice, tobacco as well as very discreet hints of minerality and cassis bud. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky and offers a beautiful definition, a small freshness, a beautiful precision, a beautiful structure, finesse, a beautiful suavity, a beautiful texture, a very slight unctuosity as well as depthness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, crushed cassis and small notes of fleshy black plum associated with small touches of red berries, red cherry as well as discreet hints of Zan, caramelization, a very discreet hint of leather and an imperceptible hint of cassis bud. Good length.
