Saturated deep red. Expressive aromas of plum, redcurrant and smoky oak, accented by mint, menthol and spices. Plush and silky in the mouth, even voluptuous, with an almost chocolatey sweetness leavened by saline, spicy minerality. Conveys an impression of big volume without excessive weight. The tannins are serious but dusty and fine-grained. 91-93 points, Vinous.
Red: its colour is ruby, shading towards the darker tones of magenta and purple. Its bouquet is redolent of animal, spice notes, underbrush, and prune, evolving with age towards musk, leather, fur and mushroom. When young, its aromas suggest rose, violet and fresh cherry. On the palate, there is a heightened attack and an agreeable balance between supple tannins and fully-rounded flavour. The dense texture and tight grain of these wines fully open after 4-5 years in the cellar.
