VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is fine, el­e­gant, fruity, finely gour­mand and of­fers power (but full of fi­nesse) as well as a fine in­ten­sity. It re­veals notes of crushed cas­sis, crushed black­berry and slight notes of crushed fleshy straw­berry as­so­ci­ated with touches of gray pep­per, black olive, gar­rigue, an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of laven­der as well as dis­creet touches of choco­late, spices and liquorice. The palate is fruity, juicy, min­eral, el­e­gant, fine, well-bal­anced and of­fers del­i­cacy, a beau­ti­ful suavity, a beau­ti­ful def­i­ni­tion, a fine acid frame (in the back­ground), a silky mat­ter as well as a very slight fresh­ness (in the back­ground). In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of juicy cas­sis, juicy black cherry and fleshy straw­berry as­so­ci­ated with touches of black­berry, blue­berry, licorice, black olive, caramelized oak as well as a very dis­creet touch of vanilla and a hint of black pep­per on the fin­ish. Tan­nins are fine and el­e­gant. Good length.
