Intense dark ruby purple color, black in the middle. Bright and clear. A sharp nose with a great freshness, offers a concentrated and energetic cocktail of red and black fruits in a balsamic atmosphere with a hint of pine forest. Peppery spices and fresh notes of venison are integrated. A mineral complexity joins this entire bouquet. The attack is generous with a soft texture, silky and fruity. The sensation of a dense tannic structure is immediate. The texture is tight but refined and supple. Great tannins coated with fruity pulp give both velvety and firm texture. Despite an accessible external appearance, this large-scale wine deserves time to develop his great potential. Great length, great format. Balance, freshness, grace, refinement, authenticity and concentration define it perfectly.
Wine with great aging potential. Drinking between 2026 and 2046.
