The nose: a light vanilla and wooden touch is underlined by aromas of plum, fresh mint and black minty pepper with also a pinch of blackcurrant during the agitation. The attack is sharp and clear. The fine grain makes a silky thread. A light fat produces the scale and the sweetness. Some liquorice touches are born and finale persists for a long time.
“Deep and dark, the garnet color with purple reflections indicates the youth of this wine whose bouquet delivers fruity notes underlined by a light woody frame. If the attack is supple and generous, the palate then deploys a dense tannic structure and a little austere on the finish. Everything suggests a short stay in the cellar for the tannins to ripen.” – Guide Hachette 2015
