Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir. Dense robe, with lots of freshness in its youth with very often aromas of violets. The palate is pleasant, silky, and finesse. Over the years, it suggests aromas of slightly licorice fur and candied cherries.
The nose is fruity, aromatic, and elegant and offers a small richness as well as a fine grain. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, fleshy Questch plum, and small notes of Sichuan pepper associated with very fine hints of tonka bean and spices. The palate is fruity, and well-balanced and offers richness/juiciness, a fine acidulous frame, elegance, a fine fat as well as a fine grain.
