Winemaker's Notes:

An intense, ample and complex bouquet goes from kirsch liqueur to fresh plums followed by tobacco, earthy minerality and roasted meat. As the wine opens up, it releases aromas of red currants and raspberries, with touches of toasty coffee, leather and a hint of game. Balanced and persistent. At fi rst impact, the wine is intense and decisive and gradually softens with dense, young, lively tannins. Structured, powerful and rich with good freshness. Well-balanced and elegant, fl avors mimic the nose with hints of tobacco and fruits, including black currants and fruit preserves. Mineral, earthy notes become more balsamic. Good persistence fi nishes in notes of cola and licorice.
