The robe is dark almost black.
The nose is radiant with ripe fruit. Fresh cherries predominate with a slightly floral note in the background.
There is no duplicity about this new wine’s palate, it offers a loyal echo of the nose. The attack is fresh and supple, giving way to ripe fruit flavours that envelope the palate. It is simultaneously crisp, juicy and creamy. An aggregate of fruit such as fresh cherries and ripe blueberries. Underlined nonetheless by elegant, silky tannins. A persistent wine with a long finish slightly highlighted by subtle red spices.
Offeringa very different style from the rest of the range, this brand new cuvée will continue to mature for more than 10 years
