Tasting Notes
Limpid, intense ruby red color with small garnet textures, consistent.
The sample has a wide and complex range of hints: floral, fruity, spicy and toasted. Hints of slightly withered red flowers, followed by a fruity scent reminiscent of the first fruits of the red berry forest: blueberry, currant and strawberries. There are notes of spice such as vanilla and nutmeg. Notes of precious woods close.
The sip is rich, perfectly balanced in its parts. The tannin is important and silky. Good persistence on the nose with an aftertaste of licorice.
It is recommended in combination with elaborate game meat dishes.
