Degustation notes

Dark ruby colour with violet hues, a classic bouquet, discreet fruity aromas with juniper notes, a slightly smoky taste, pleasant berry accents on the attack, including cassis, an elegant structure, lots of finess, silky, well secured tannins with a harmonious finish. Fully deploys its aromas in a glass.
