(2009 Vintage) Dark purple. Expressive, spice-accented aromas of blackcurrant, cherry compote, pipe tobacco and candied rose. Deeply concentrated red and dark berry flavors show surprising vivacity thanks to juicy acidity and a spicy nuance. Sweet and penetrating on the finish, which has impressive length and a gentle tannic grip.
