Intense purple colour, looking very youthful with a lot of brightness. Aromatically it is also very young, it is really primary fruit with crushed berries, plum, some violet notes. No noticeable oak more in a soft, subtle, fruity style. Palate is soft and plush. With medium weight. Good level of freshness. Soft tannin, it feels more like a very soft extraction. Subtle and juicy, with crushed berry fruit, some mild spices there, some hints of apricot and pepper on the finish. So gentle with an almost like a carbonic maceration style. So it is obviously made for early drinking, and I think this is offering a lot of pleasure now. It shouldn’t really need any more age, but it could probably age for another few years. Pleasurable and fruit forward with a lot of ripe, generous fruit.
