The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a very fine intensity. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of black cherry associated with touches of crushed red fruits, toasted touches and very discreet hints of liquorice, cocoa bean and a very discreet hint of hazelnut (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers juiciness, gourmandise, a small freshness, finesse as well as a small acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of black cherry associated with small touches of tonka bean / cocoa, ripe / crushed red currants and hints of sweet spices. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
