Powerful, the bouquet develops small black fruits (blackberries, blueberries) and spices aromas.
Silky and delicate, the palate reveals a pleasant density, ripe and velvety tannins with bigarreau cherry and vanilla notes.
The finish is fresh, long and very elegant.
The mild and particularly rainy winter, followed by a wet spring, created a lot of concern but turned out to be a decisive advantage for this vintage! Once the mildew problems had been elimnated, the soft warmth at the end of June provided very favorable conditions for the vineyard’s development. Throughout the sunny summer, the vines had good reserves and has tapped into rich soil. The regular and early flowering, followed by a more spread veraison allowed a homogeneous harvest which took place on 24th and 25th September with perfect sanitary conditions.
