Clean and bright with a medium deep color. Elegant cherry red developing to maroon. The nose is intense and complex. Well-integrated aromas ripe fruits and cedar (cigar box), spicy notes like clove and cinnamon. Slight toasted and cocoa touch. The palate is elegant, homogeneous and structured. Fine and silky. Round tannins. There is a long finish, it is intense and pleasant. Integrated notes of ripe fruits and wood.

A very pretty wine now with cedar, mushrooms and dried red fruit. Medium body, fine tannins and a subtle, polished finish.

Autumnal, bonfire character here: savoury, truffle, cinder toffee and dried black cherry. A classic yet rich and concentrated wine that perfectly expresses the year and region.
