...exquisite bouquet with blackberry, bilberry and cassis fruit. This is very elegant and linear, great precision here. The palate is very well balanced, structured with citrus-infused blackcurrant fruit.
Currently showing its darker Mazoyères side (which compromises roughly one-third of the blend) in the mouth, along with complex soil tones. This firmly built wine finishes with serious spreading tannins and lingering notes of leather and smoke.
Otherwise there is excellent freshness and vivacity to the sleek and silky middle weight flavors that are focused and mildly austere on the linear finish.
Hint of cheesiness on the nose. Lively and fresh. Lots of excitement. Racy.
