Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Deep garnet-red color with reflections of deepest violet. 

Aroma: 

Intense aromas of cocoa and cherry dominate when the wine is swirled. 

Palate: 

On the palate, the flavors are layered with nuances of vanilla, white pepper, and fresh berry. On the palate, the wine is full and robust in texture with silky tannins. Plum and black cherry combine with warm dessert spices to create a remarkable finish to this rich and multifaceted wine. Ever-present cocoa notes, with a mineral touch, mingle with mint aromas to give a great freshness to this wine. Its delicate complexity and lusciousness is balanced by a fruity roundness. A very ample wine with an aromatic strength for the second vintage of this micro-cuvée.
