Intense colour with attractive raspberry reflections. The powerful and complex nose reveals notes of eaude-vie fruits.The attack is fresh and lively.This is a discreet,yet highly pleasurable wine. The finish lingers with notes of cherry liqueur.
A humid year. The rainy end to the summer caused the grapes to swell.
