VertdeVin - - Front Page -

The nose is fruity, gour­mand, el­e­gant and fine. It re­veals notes of crushed black­berry and fine notes of cas­sis com­bined with touches of crushed straw­berry, dis­creet notes of crushed rasp­berry, dis­creet hints of liquorice, toasted oak as well as a touch of mocha and a dis­creet hint of clove. The palate is fruity, min­eral, suave, rel­a­tively gour­mande and of­fers a cer­tain right­eous­ness, ten­sion, a nice grain as well as a nice acid frame. On the palate, this wine ex­presses notes of red fruits, black­berry and cas­sis com­bined with slight hints red­cur­rant, wild straw­ber­rie as well as hints of toasted oak, cho­co­late (dis­creet), licorice and hints of carameliza­tions. Tan­nins are very fine, well-built and young. Good length and per­sis­tence.

Score : 17.5
