(2009 Vintage) Extremely rich and complex, the nose is showing a multitude of ripe red and black fruits (redcurrant, raspberries, cassis, blackberries) with notes of liquorice, truffle, balsamic and spices (cedar, nutmeg and black pepper), all perfectly integrated. The intense aromas evolve nicely in the glass, slowly opening up to more intense and complex notes.
