Red wine, medium deep ruby colour, nothing blue or purple left in this, so some more evolution perhaps. Nose is attractive with floral hints of sweet red fruit, which indicates quite a lot of sunshine; feels rather ripe with plum, figs, crushed red berries, really no oak. Nice density on the palate; I would say this is quite full in terms of fruit, we have those sweet fruity notes, like ripe plum, which brings my mind pretty much to Grenache. Then we have some other white pepper and herbs, but in terms of tannins it’s a quite loose structure, so full in volume, quite juicy, attractive, sweet fruit there. Nice and grainy tannins, still a bit youthful, but perfectly integrated. No oak. I think that this wine nicely combines ripe dark fruits, or ripe sweet fruits I would say, but it still has a good deal of freshness on the palate. Perfectly drinkable to me in a very nice clean charming Southern French style.
