Pretty picota cherry colour with violet reflections. High robe and very bright, abundant tears stain the glass.This new vintage surprises us once again with its evolution in the nose. It shows intense toasted and smoked aromas at first (along with black olives and hints of tobacco). Gradually fleshy notes of red and black ripe fruit appear along with some spicy aromas (clove, cinnamon and vanilla), hints of aromatic herbs such as rosemary and refreshing balsamic nuances. Notes of minerals and undergrowth is also felt in the background.On the palate, this wine is balanced and elegant. After a controlled attack, this wine shows a very pleasant mellow mid palate marked by abundant notes of fruit, a great refreshing and well-integrated acidity and intense and ripe tannins. Long and considerably persistent finish leaving notes of fruit and smoky nuances at retro-olfaction.
