"vintage 2015: The nose reveals notes of cassis, plum and slight notes of dried flowers associated with a discreet hint of olive tree and white pepper. The pa¬late is fruity, fine, sleek, relatively elegant, juicy and offers fat, a slight freshness as well as a slight tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy red cherry, small red berries and slight notes of blueberry associated with a hint of blackberry, caramelized oak as well as a very discreet hint of vanilla, sweet spices and an imperceptible hint of zan. Tannins are well-built and slightly firm. Good length. " [+]
