Wine Region: Rhone-Valley - France
Tasting notes: Reducing nose with notes of graphite, black fruit jelly and bay leaf. Completed by some nuances of cedar and fig leaves. On the palate, the attack is full-bodied, the mid-palate is voluminous with velvety tannins. With a good balance between freshness and power, the aromatic palette gives pride to spices, ripe black fruits and sooty notes.
