Tasting Notes
Limpid, ruby ​​red in color with garnet colored textures, consistent.
The nose is an effluvium of floral and fruity scents reminiscent of red wild flowers and small red and dark berries. Hints of spice are perceived that give way to a finish with balsamic notes.
Full-bodied sip, with an important tannic texture still not perfectly smooth. Persistent and mineral closes the sip with a sensation of spice and balsamic notes.
Tried in combination with a guinea fowl hunter.
