Very inky colour here, bright but very dark at the centre. Quite elegant nose here, I would say classic style; I get some wood here, some roasted wood, leather, rather dark fruity notes with some cassis, plum. Quite classic with a hint of tobacco as well. Palate has a good density, it’s not the broadest example, but that fruit is very inky and refreshing, combining that dark fruity character – the cassis, the plum – with a bright freshness. We have a quite good deal of extract here, but the tannins are really powdery and fine. Very stylish I would say, clearly with a notion of Cabernet elegance. Good purity, good persistence. Pretty delicious to drink already today, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second with a big juicy steak, for that fresh good tannin, good acidity, elegant dark fruit; but doubtlessly a wine that will be better after a few years in the bottle. Enjoy!
