Extremely youthful here, almost black, probably needs time to develop. Nice purity on the nose here, rather on the fruity side. High ripeness, wild berry fruit, blackberry, cassis, not a lot of oak; there’s a few leafy herbal notes. Quite concentrated on the palate, but a nice concentration. The extraction is pretty supple here, not a lot of hardness or any tannic sensation; fine tannin, good density of that fruit again, dark fruity. Fine spiciness, just some gentle notes of vanilla. Well-kept freshness, and a pretty long finish. Rather elegant style with a good concentration, good purity of fruit; and I would say pretty accessible today, even if it’s a wine that will certainly develop well from some further aging.
