The granite soils of this great vineyard give intense minerality and structure to this wine. Black fruits shine through, built up by bright acidity and structured tannins. This will develop into a rich wine, concentrated while always having a fresh edge.
Vivid ruby. Cherry pit, cassis, candied flowers and licorice on the powerfully scented nose. Offers densely packed dark fruit and spicecake flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity and sharpened by a jolt of white pepper. Concentrated yet lively as well, showing excellent delineation, chewy tannins and a very long, floral-accented finish.
Lurid ruby. Spice-accented blackberry and licorice scents show very good clarity and lift. Chewy and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy dark fruit and floral pastille flavors sharpened by a dusty mineral flourish. The floral quality carries through a long, nervy finish that leaves a bitter cherry pit note behind.
Bright violet. Intensely perfumed aromas of fresh red berries, potpourri, incense and smoky minerals; a peppery note adds spicy lift. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy red and dark berry flavors along with suggestions of spicecake and candied rose. Shows very good clarity and solid punch on a long, incisive finish framed by silky, harmonious tannins.
