VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is aro­matic, con­cen­trated and of­fers ele­gance and a fine in­ten­sity. It re­veals notes of Boy­sen­berry, flow­ers (lilies, corn­flower) and wild straw­ber­ries as­so­ci­ated with a small note of red­cur­rant, toasted oak as well as a hint of vanilla, a dis­creet hint of gar­rigue and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of Sichuan pep­per. The palate is fruity, well-bal­anced and of­fers a nice min­eral frame, a fine juici­ness, ten­sion, del­i­cacy, a beau­ti­ful straight­ness, har­mony, a fine acid­ity, suavity, a nice fresh­ness, a beau­ti­ful def­i­ni­tion as well as a nice fi­nesse. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of juicy Boy­sen­berry, fleshy rasp­berry and juicy red­cur­rants as­so­ci­ated with small touches of vanilla/wood, small toasted touches as well as a very dis­creet hint of Cey­lon tea and car­damom. Tan­nins are fine and a bit chewy. Good length. There is an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of co­las on the per­sis­tence.
