Garnet with slight amber highlights. The nose is intense and aromatic, jammy with notes of kirsch. The palate is frank, with fine tannins, stylish and well presented. Harmonious with a beautifully long finish.
A firmly terroir-driven wine, solidly based on its tannins and the richest of red fruits. Very mineral, chewy at this young stage, densely concentrated, the acidity a sharp light through the fruit. Powerful stuff.
