Attractive deep ruby colour with purple tinges. The nose is fine and delicate, revealing greedy notes of cherry, plum and violet. It is quickly enriched with notes of red pepper and fine notes of sweet spices. Round and supple attack. Its intense fruitiness underlines the overall balance. The texture is fine, framed by pretty tannins reflecting a beautiful maturity of the harvest. The aromatic palette lingers on the finish through fresh red berries.
