"This exceptional wine has a beautiful, deep-red ruby color and the bright sheen of great Burgundies. Intense and fresh nose when the wine is young. Notes of red fruit dominate such as Morello cherry, raspberry and blackberry with hints of complexity with smoky flavors evolving towards liquorice. When the wine is maturing, aromas of pepper, tobacco, humus and undergrowth appear. When drinking the wine, the first impression is always clear-cut and the texture fleshy. The body is firm without being rough, well meshed without being heavy. With age, the wine gets rounder. It takes on velvety texture and a more precise architecture, supported by silky tannins."
