    • Aspect: Cherry red.
    • Aroma : The first nose offers us light toasted and smoky notes. With aeration, the bouquet opens with subtle notes of red fruits (cherry, raspberry). Hints of spices (nutmeg) add depth to the olfaction
    • Taste : Soft attack. The structure in the mouth is quite round and rather airy. All the tannins are well blended. Red fruit aromas echo those of olfaction. A slight bitterness at the end of the mouth prolongs the gustatory sensation.
