VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is fruity, finely tight and of­fers power. It re­veals notes of wild black­ber­ries, cas­sis and wild berries as­so­ci­ated with a hint of cherry, gar­rigue, toasted oak, min­er­al­ity / flint, mocha and a very dis­creet hint of Sichuan pep­per. The palate is fruity, well-bal­anced, pre­cise / strict, well­struc­tured and of­fers a nice fresh­ness, a good def­i­ni­tion, straight­ness, a beau­ti­ful acid frame, a cer­tain rich­ness, fresh­ness, a good vol­ume as well as a fine depth­ness. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of fleshy straw­berry, fleshy cas­sis and small notes of wild black­berry as­so­ci­ated with fine touches of gar­rigue, racy min­er­al­ity as well as a sub­tle hint of salin­ity, small touches of spices, vanilla and a very dis­creet hint of Sichuan pep­per (in the back­ground). Tan­nins are fine and a bit tight. Good length and good per­sis­tence. There is a hint of co­coa on the per­sis­tence.
