Limpid, intense ruby red color with light garnet color textures, consistent.
Sample of fine quality and quite complex in the bouquet of its scents. Moderate floral notes, a scent of ripe red fruit tending to jam, in particular of morello cherry. Closing with delicate notes of sweet spices and a nuance of undergrowth.
On the palate the tannin is well defined and elegant, the persistence of the olfactory taste which recalls hints of ripe fruit is important. Good balance in its components.
Tried with a platter of long-aged mixed cheeses.
