A deep purplish red colour with flashes of plum, revealing an impressive density and dept. a finely textured nose with aromas of jammy wild fruit (blackcurrant, whortleberry and blackberry), with a Mediterranean density. The amplitude of the tannins is simply astonishing. Their softness offset by a slight tang, giving the wine an impression of freshness. The finish is seemingly endless with hints of laurel, black pepper and camphor. After a few minutes, the tasting gains in warmth highlighting the notes of moorland and smoky Provence herbs.
Good match with red meals (in sauce or grilled). To serve at 16‐18° C.
