92/100, Vert de Vin Magazine: "The nose is fruity, racy and offers fine minerality as well as elegance. We find notes of blackcurrant, crushed cherry and more lightly raspberry / ripe redcurrant associated with a hint of flowers as well as hints of liquorice, sweet spices and toasted. The mouth is fruity, balanced, mineral, fresh and offers minerality, roundness, a fine tension as well as an acid frame ( In the mouth, this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, cherry and strawberry associated with a hint of crushed currant, blackcurrant as well as touches of toasted oak, liquorice / zan, with subtle touches of sweet spices with a very discreet hint of cocoa. Good length. "

Garnet hue, (slightly evolved for the vintage).
Bright fruit evoking notes of candied fruit all carried by a solar character. Airing gives way to much more spice and notes of black olive.
Delicate and sweet mouth accompanied by acidity on the finish. Its profile is airy and leaves a nice aromatic afterglow.
This wine even has a tendency to “pinch. "
Serving temperatures: 16 ° C.
Harmonises: filet mignon of black pork with button mushrooms, Pot-au-feu, ravioli with artichokes and sage ...
