The color is deeper, still ruby. The bouquet offers both youthful and mature notes. It smells of ripe dark red and black fruits, chocolate, a hint of wood. Just a beautiful, classic merlot bouquet. The wine is dry in the mouth, the texture is velvety, the tannins are flexible and the ripe fruity character in the mouth is intense. On the more elegant side. Despite the warm year, it has a nice measure of freshness. Beautiful, crafted, reference merlot.
