VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is gour­mand, a bit tight and of­fers con­cen­tra­tion, power, a beau­ti­ful fi­nesse / ele­gance as well as rich­ness. The wine needs to be put in carafe. It re­veals notes of cas­sis and black­berry as­so­ci­ated with a small note of crushed straw­berry, black olive, wild berries, gar­rigue, a touch of corn­flower / lily as well as small hints of carameliza­tion, to­bacco, choco­late and a dis­creet hint of Cuben pep­per. The palate is fruity, well-bal­anced, el­e­gant, quite sub­tle and of­fers a beau­ti­ful min­eral frame, fresh­ness, juici­ness, suavity, a beau­ti­ful straight­ness, an aerial as­pect, ten­sion, power as well as a very beau­ti­ful, gour­mande, silky and fleshy mat­ter. On the palate, this wine ex­presses notes of fleshy / juicy black­berry, juicy plum and juicy rasp­berry com­bined with touches of juicy black cherry, gar­rigue, black olive as well as a sub­tle hint of caramelized oak, licorice, choco­late and a dis­creet hint of tea (on the fin­ish / back­ground). Tan­nins are el­e­gant and a bit chewy. Good length.
