Degustation: Beautiful ruby color leading again a little on the purple, sign of the youth of this Cuvée. The nose gives immediately an impression of finesse and freshness on a background of red berries types redcurrant or cherry stone, grenache tends towards pinot with the great cuvée... Maturation in barrel has developed a grain of tannins divinely silky, rising the sensation of richesse and complexity. It is a real bouquet of perfumes which is offered to us, like frequently on this appellation, scents of bread crumbles, roasted, undergrowth, smoke, roasting and even chocolate. The whole is orchestrated by a good acidity which will keep the wine under a form of tension offering at the palate a length unforgettable...
