VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is fruity, finely pow­er­ful and of­fers fine juici­ness and a fine con­cen­tra­tion. It re­veals notes of fleshy cas­sis, crushed blue­berry and straw­berry as­so­ci­ated with touches of gar­rigue, vi­o­let, co­las as well as sub­tle touches of caramelized oak and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of to­bacco. The palate is fruity, well-bal­anced, finely gour­mande and of­fers a beau­ti­ful min­eral frame, a fine juici­ness, suavity, ele­gance, fresh­ness, a small aerial side as well as a good def­i­ni­tion. On the palate, this wine ex­presses notes of juicy cas­sis, juicy black cherry and small notes of juicy blue­berry as­so­ci­ated with fine touches of crushed straw­berry, co­las / licorice, black olive, grilled oak and a sub­tle hint mocha and car­damom / to­bacco. Tan­nins are slightly chewy. Good length. The af­ter­taste is slightly pow­er­ful.
