The nose is fruity and offers a fine concentration. It reveals notes of pulpy blackberry, strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with small touches of violet, cherry blossom as well as hints of fresh mild tobacco and a very discreet hint of vanilla (in the background). The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, suavity, a small tension, a beautiful mineral frame as well as a small emptiness in the middle of the palate. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy blackberry, pulpy cassis and small notes of ripe raspberry associated with touches of zan, chocolate as well as fine hints of vanilla, violet and hazelnut. Good length. A wine on the fruit and gourmandize.
