tasting :
Deep purple colour with purple tints.

The nose is deep and expressive, marked by aromas of jammy black fruit associated with notes of spices and undergrowth. Touches of violet petals give elegance to the wine.
The palate is supple and powerful. A smooth and rich texture, accompanied by aromas of blackcurrant berries and jammy blackberries. Also notes of smoke, black pepper and clove bring spicy touches to the wine and notes of pencil lead bring freshness to the finish. The tannins are dense and velvety. Nice length in the mouth.

Good with:
