(From 2009 Vintage) Classically built, with a compact and fine-tuned frame giving way to rich cassis, black cherry reduction, fig paste, spice box and licorice notes woven with fine tannins, juicy acidity and a firm, minerally spine.
Deep, intense ruby red. The nose reveals pure, delicate aromas of ripe blackcurrants, wild strawberries and blackberries, blended with hints of minerals and fine notes of vanilla, coffee, licorice and spices. The mouth shows outstanding balance, a firm tannic structure anbd exceptional length. The tannins are ripe, refined and concentrated, contributing to the density and elegant texture of the wine. A complex, graceful and brilliant wine, pure and precise in its mineral character, persistent and layered, harmoniously balanced by a great acidity.
