A slightly closed, spicy, peppery, slightly animal nose. Smells of undergrowth, wild fruits.
The nose is refined in the air on fresher notes.
Fine, supple, round, elegant wine. A bit austere tannic structure, typical of the vintage. Slight bitters in the end.
Harmonises with: duck aiguillettes with chanterelles, duck pie with porcini mushrooms ...
