Youthful red wine here, with a bright quite deep ruby-red colour. Fine nose, it starts out quite discreetly here, with notes of wild berries, a hint of leather, cassis, discreet wood. I like the texture here, we have quite juicy rounded fruit, with notes of red currant and plum. Discreet spiciness here, nothing green but rather mild spices like clove and vanilla. Well-integrated wood. Well-preserved acidity, giving that ripe sweet fruit a good lift. Tannins are grainy and fine so there’s no hardness here, we have a long and clear finish. I would say a very nice expression in a classic, rather elegant style. Fine drinkability, good persistence here, with those clear red fruity flavours lingering, just a hint of wood and vanilla on the finish. Drink it today, keep it 10 years, but good drinkability today according to me.
