DÉGUSTATION

Ruby robe with bright-red fringes. The nose is fruity, with cherry notes, enhanced by a delicate woody note; then aromas of character are revealed, spices, nutmeg, white pepper. The attack in mouth is smooth; the silky tannins are carried by a beautiful roundness. The finish brings back spicy notes of black pepper, curry and eucalyptus.
