The nose is rel­a­tively aro­matic as well as rel­a­tively el­e­gant. It re­veals notes of black­berry, small wild berries and hints of toasted oak com­bined with a slight hint of clove, cof­fee, very dis­crete notes of truf­fle, fine touches of flow­ers as well as a dis­creet hint of un­der­growth, Sichuan pep­per and a slight touch of fresh straw­berry. The mouth is fruity, min­eral, suave, silky, straight and of­fers a nice mat­ter, ten­sion, an acid frame, round­ness, a fine con­cen­tra­tion, a fine sen­sa­tion of sweet­ness and a fine juici­ness. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of black­berry, cas­sis and slight notes of grav­elly min­er­al­ity, straw­berry as­so­ci­ated with slight hints of truf­fle and a dis­creet hint of mocha. Tan­nins are fine and well-built. Good length.
