VertdeVin - - Front Page -

The nose is fruity, rel­a­tively fresh and slightly pow­er­ful. It re­veals notes of cas­sis, black­berry and slight notes of fleshy straw­ber­ries as­so­ci­ated to a touch of racy/gravel min­er­al­ity, spices, toasted hints as well as a dis­creet hint of grey pep­per and vanilla. The palate is fruity, min­eral, racy, silky, rel­a­tively suave and of­fers a min­eral fram, a slight acid­ity (in the back­ground), round­ness, fat, fi­nesse as well as a small juici­ness. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of fleshy straw­ber­ries, rasp­berry and slight notes of black­berry, cas­sis as­so­ci­ated with slight notes of racy min­er­al­ity, a slight touch of sweet spices and a slight toasted touch. Tan­nins are fine and well-built. Good length. The af­ter­taste is suave. There are a very dis­creet hint of salin­ity and caramelized oak on the per­sis­tence. A nice wine!
