Beautiful ruby colour with some purple highlights.
Minty nose, a little spicy black pepper, but also notes of dark berries, cassis and blackberry.
Pretty bold, well rounded and a good tannic structure revealing a superb balance.
The fruit is present throughout the tasting. Very clear, uniform and fine.
Silky finish and good length.
To decant an hour before tasting.
A hot, dry spring, cool, wet summer causing streaks (so small crop), and September-October warm and dry to achieve a good maturity of two varieties with a good health status.
