The nose expresses all the richness of the colour. Intense, deep bouquet. A harmonious blend of black fruit, liquorice, crystallized violets, cigar box, and vanilla. It promises a wine that is rich, ripe and yet also fresh. On the palate, one is struck by the remarkable balance between sweetness, freshness and power. The attack is smooth and voluptuous. The tight texture of fine, silky tannins then develops volume, giving the wine a noble character, finishing with an incredibly long aromatic and mineral freshness
