TASTING

o Eye: dark and almost opaque, the colour is purple, tinged with inky reflections
Thick teardrops slowly run down the glass.

o Nose: The opulence of the nose is coupled with a rich complexity

The opening is made with aromas of cherry confiture, followed by caramelised apple and spices such as vanilla and cinnamon.

Notes of freshly roasted almond and cocoa bean are then revealed

o Palate: the palate confirms a warm and lively richness

The elegant tannins and the density of the fruit combine voluptuously, giving a perfect balance

Lots of elegance ending with notes of roasting and pine resin
