Very youthful colour here, bright with a purple hue, quite deep intensity. Fine nose here. Good purity. It exudes quite high ripeness with black currant, plum, dark cherry. Good purity here. There is a hint of minerality. Some floral notes of violet. Quite discreet but still presence of roasted oak. Good bite on the palate. Very dense structure here. Really with a wealth of fresh dark fruit. Beautiful flavours of cassis, with tobacco leaf, hint of leather. Stylish with really fine oak. Texture is already, I would say, quite polished. Finely grained tannin, giving a good lift. Long and vigorous finish as well. Really juicy and attractive. Nice modern style, yet with a good purity and notion of terroir. Fine minerality. Really fine potential here.

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