Dark coloured, almost black, with purple hues.
The nose is profound as its colour, with spices - chocolate, vanilla – ripe cherry and freshly cut rosemary. It’s a very rich nose, primary somehow reluctant, that fully opens in the glass.
A straight mouth, fresh and round on the palate, with lots of young but smooth tannins. A long finish on fruit.
This wine has it s own character, reflecting perfectly its terroir et origins. Still young, but already excellent company for a roasted duck or a Coq-au-vin. Decanting about an hour before tasting will reveal all its aromatic potential.
