The nose is racy, well-managed and offers depth as well as a very fine and tightly wound grain. The wine benefits from being decanted. There are notes of crushed redcurrants, wild strawberries and a hint of salinity/iodine, combined with hints of red berries, balsamic, liquorice, tobacco and a very discreet hint of undergrowth. The palate is fresh, juicy and offers a nice racy minerality, suppleness, crunchiness, a nice gourmandise, freshness, a nice tannic frame, a fine concentration as well as a fine solar side. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of fairly ripe raspberry, wild strawberry and, to a lesser extent, crushed cherry, combined with hints of pulpy blackcurrant, violet, tonka bean and blond tobacco, as well as a subtle hint of camphor, racy minerality, iodine, salinity and vanilla. Good length. Fine firmness on the finish.
