VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is aro­matic, el­e­gant, gour­mand, fine, finely pow­er­ful and of­fers con­cen­tra­tion. It re­veals notes of wild black­ber­ries, crushed cas­sis and fleshy straw­ber­ries com­bined with hints of fresh red­cur­rant, very dis­creet hints of vi­o­let, spices as well as sub­tle toasted hints oak, mocha and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of un­der­growth. The wine needs to be put in carafe. The palate is fruity, well-bal­anced, well-built, pre­cise, finely gour­mande and of­fers a nice min­eral frame, a fine suavity, fi­nesse, a fine straight­ness, a fine fresh­ness, a fine acid­ity (in the back­ground), pre­ci­sion as well as har­mony. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of fleshy black­berry, fleshy straw­berry and slight notes of cas­sis as­so­ci­ated with touches of cherry, sub­tle toasted hints oak, choco­late / moka, carameliza­tion as well as an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of vanilla and hazel­nut. Tan­nins are fine and very dis­creetly firm. Good length. There is an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of un­der­growth on the fin­ish / per­sis­tence.
