Description

A lightly young and fresh colour with hints of claret red, ripe griotte cherry and ruby with a few purple highlights accompanied by a wonderful shimmer and transparency. Its aromatic and beautiful character is young, precise and clearly stated with a fruity pleasantness which lets the pinot noir grape stand out. Hints of red fruit, cranberry, redcurrant, griotte cherry, hawthorn blossom, rose, woodflowers and a touch of blond tobacco leaf associated with a nice youthful freshness.
On the palate this is an elegantly structured red wine with a long lasting flavour and pleasantly easy to drink, in
spite of the slight smooth presence of tannin leading to a well-balanced and fruity after-taste.
