The wine faithfully expresses the climatology that prevailed during the vintage, showing itself to be balanced and very juicy.
Its easy-drinking character and “good manners” surprise you, even when you remember that it is only three years’ old and it is from a zone which usually needs more bottle time.
That said, you can make allowance for the occasional rough edges on the palate which are of little importance and will round themselves off very quickly.
The nose is attractive with fresher fruit than we are used to find in this wine.
Very precise balance between red berry fruit and oaky spiciness which have still not fully integrated.
On the one hand, the fruit is complex, difficult to pin down, and on the other we have very clearly defined spices: black pepper, cloves, vanilla and a little charcoal.
In the back of the nasal cavity the spiciness dominates, a little drier, but more elegant and much richer in nuances.
The fruit only returns after a few seconds in the aftertaste where we again find the red berries and something which seems similar to peaches and ripe plums.
In appearance it is rather more reddish than purple at the rim suggesting excellent acidity, boding well for the future.
