The nose offers strawberry, cherry and blackcurrant fruit, later evolving into cooked prunes, peppery notes and mushroom. It is lively and structured in the mouth with a well-rounded and supple backbone. Tannins and fruit go hand in hand, with great balance.
It boasts firm coloration with green highlights. Aromas of mayflower, acacia, and honeysuckle blend with verbena and hazelnut and in some cases toast or fresh butter. This wine boasts a profound minerality (flint). Age brings in notes of honey or ripe pear. Rounded and often opulent, its attack is instantaneous. On the palate, fleshiness is matched by mellowness, and both are equally persistent.
The red is ruby through cerise to dark garnet. Its bouquet is composed of black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) and red fruit (cherry) plus liquorice, lilac, and rose petals, evolving towards cooked fruit. On the palate, the tannins respect the fruit and give the wine a well-defined structure.
