VertdeVin - - Front Page -

The nose is fruity, fine, nicely pow­er­ful (pre­cisely well-bal­anced). It re­veals notes of Boy­sen­berry and cas­sis as­so­ci­ated with slight hints of red fruit, pep­per, dis­creet woody hints as well as a hint of cof­fee, spices and a nice hint of licorice. The palate is fruity, min­eral, racy, suave, round and of­fers a nice fresh­ness, a nice min­eral frame, a good vol­ume, ten­sion and a nice fat. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of crushed black­berry and fleshy rasp­berry as­so­ci­ated with fine notes of straw­berry, cherry as well as hints of toasted oak and a dis­creet hint of mocha. Tan­nins are fine, el­e­gant, struc­tur­ing and slightly firm. Good length. There is a slight hint of dark cho­co­late and a very dis­creet hint of flow­ers on the per­sis­tence.

Score : 17.5+
