VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is fruity and of­fers power and con­cen­tra­tion. It re­veals notes of crushed cas­sis, crushed black­berry, small notes of black cherry and touches of crushed straw­berry com­bined with a touch of corn­flower, licorice, sweet spices, a very dis­creet hint of lau­rel as well as an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of Sichuan pep­per and caramelized oak. The mouth is min­eral, fruity, juicy, well-bal­anced, a bit gour­mande and of­fers flu­id­ity, suavity, a fine ten­sion, a fine con­cen­tra­tion, fresh­ness as well as a fine straight­ness. On the palate, this wine ex­presses notes of ripe cherry, crushed cas­sis and crushed black­berry com­bined with small touches of crushed / fleshy straw­berry, co­las, black olives and small toasted touches / caramelized oak and a dis­creet hint of vanilla. Tan­nins are a bit firm.
