The color is deep, with a garnet hue deepened by purple tinges. The nose shows seductive whiffs of crushed black fruit - dark cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants - that evolve in the glass to reveal slightly smoky and licorice notes, typical of the "Chassis" area. In retro-olfaction, and on a mineral background, menthol and eucalyptus express their hints. In the mouth, the seriousness of the wine combines with its delicacy: the first impact is fresh and lively. The texture is tannic but intense, pulpy, almost silky. This truly balanced wine expresses a nice complexity, generous and true to the genuine terroir of the Domaine des Grands Chemins. The wine's structure, along with its aromatic persistence, gives it a great potential for laying down.
A dark and strangely opulent nose of mocha, cassis and ecclesiastic spice, the palate holds a handsome savory content with licorice and blackberry skins. The tannins are firm and assertive on the mid palate and continue to a long and solid finish.
