Medium deep ruby-red colour. Fine notes, quite inviting there with plenty of sweet fruit, sweet red berries, plum, some mocha, tobacco, almost with a hint of black truffle as well. That mineral sensation, that earthy sensation I would say. Very nice palate. This is a style of wine I would rather call it “Burgundian texture”. Very nice wealth of fruit, you have those beautiful little ripe red berries, some notes of plum, fine spices like ginger and cinnamon. Oak is not really noticeable and the tannins are really grainy and fine. So it has quite lush texture, roundness, but has a bit more depth and power. So a really attractive wine I would happily drink today. A long and lingering finish with already a good development and certain complexity.

Tasted by the Best Sommelier of the World, Andreas Larsson.
