Medium intense cherry hue with purple rim, dense and well-defined legs. The nose is initially fresh and floral (lilacs, violets, hydrangeas) giving way to more earthy notes with hints of blackberry. With oxygenation the freshness becomes ever more obvious and with palma violets and hints of barrel ageing, all wrapped up in lactic and mineral overtones. With further oxygenation the fresh fruit comes through with balsamic undertones. In the mouth it is fresh and light, the silky tannins underpinning a good weight of fruit and balsamic flavours and hints of blackberries; it is very, very long thanks to its great acidity which gives it a very agreeable aftertaste.
Vintage Burgundy bottle, natural cork 45 x 24.5, recycled paper label, complex capsule, packed in 6-bottle cases of recycled cardboard.
