Maturing. Cassis & earth aromas. Medium bodied, quite dry palate.

Wine has ruby color with exciting brightness. Nose is very classical but quite easy. There are ripe currant, violets and bell pepper. On the palate light body (med), fine acidity (med+) and ripe velvet tannins (med+).

Classic Bordeaux. Still a bit young, but nice.
