The nose is strikingly perfumed with ripe mulberries, dark chocolate and freshly picked mint lifted by hints of both tobacco and cherry. The background expression of mocha and vanillin from selected Tronçais French oak barrels integrates well with the rich fruit flavours.
Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, with a persistence of flavour. The powdery, brick dust tannins provide a silky, linear transition from the front to the back of the palate, with a salivating finish. The balance of savoury and sweetness of fruit and the suppleness of the tannins is integrated with redcurrant, sour cherry, anise, tar and subtle liquorice. Finely balanced and elegant with a beautiful easy weight.
