Bright medium red. Ineffable aromas of perfumed red fruits, dried flowers and truffley underbrush, complicated by a saline quality. Supple and seamless on the palate, showing a restrained sweetness to its flavors of red berries, smoke and earth. Finishes with dusty tannins and a lingering oakiness. Doesn't show quite the exhilarating floral lift of the Chaignots but possesses strong material.
