Tasting notes:
Dress: Beautiful clear purple red colour with violet reflections.
Nose: From the opening, the nose is on notes of red fruits like currant, blackcurrant where the spices are mixed: cinnamon, cardamom, gingerbread. Then, we find the crushed black olives and the ripe red fruits.
Palate: The freshness is felt from the start in the mouth, with many small ripe red fruits such as redcurrant and a certain concentration while remaining light and elegant. The tannins are very supple, well melted and the finish is long, complex with iodine and floral notes reminiscent of peony and violet.
A wonderful and modern Grenache.
