A GOURMAND NOSE
The nose is plunged into a basket of ripe blackberries: wild strawberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants release their summer aromas. Notes of sunny yellow peaches then become more pronounced. This crescendo continues and morphs into mouthwatering nuance of strawberry jam.
THE PALATE COMBINES RICHNESS AND FRESHNESS
Intense and tasty, the sensation of red berries lingers on the palate for a long time. It is partnered by the sweetness of nutmeg and caramel. A nice contrast to finish, with the acidulous freshness contributed by a burst of redcurrant.

A NOSE WITH VIBRANT FRUITINESS
Morello cherry, cranberry: red berries start proceedings, before being joined by nuances of juicy summer fruit like fig and nectarine. A note of grenadine syrup punctuates the gourmand aromas.
A LUSCIOUS PALATE, COMBINING SOFTNESS AND FIRMNESS
With their pronounced aromas right from the start, the sweetness of the red berries melts into the ensemble and becomes lighter, giving way to a sensation of balance between fruit and freshness. The fresh finish releases a delicately bitter note of pink grapefruit.

The initial notes of the bouquet are sweet, tinged with a fruit salad of red berries (wild strawberries, raspberries, pomegranate seeds), it then develops a touch of acidity with blood oranges and starfruit. Scents of spices (black pepper, dark chocolate, cinnamon), dried flowers and fresh leather complete the bouquet.
SPICY, WELL-DEFINED PALATE
On the palate, the full-bodied attack confirms the wine’s voluptuous character. The polished structure of the Pinot Noir is accompanied by a sensation of crisp stone fruit (plums, cherries). The texture is finely powdered. A delicate astringency underscores the long finish (pink grapefruit, lime zest).

A FRUITY AND INTENSE NOSE
The first notes start tropical, with the powerful fruitiness of mango and pineapple. They then leave room for the generosity of stone fruits such as nectarine, then to an original raspberry note.
THE GENEROUS PALATE COMBINES SWEETNESS AND FRESHNESS
After the fleshy and delicious fullness of a fresh fruit salad comes the sweetness of caramel and quince jelly. The fresh acidity of grapefruit and ginger creates a lively sensation on the palate.

The wine’s maturity is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey and nougat. White fruit is then revealed, reminiscent of a mealy apple or a beautifully ripe pear. Scents of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the aromatic bouquet.
LIVELY, WELL-DEFINED PALATE
The palate is direct and energetic, supported by lively yet delicate acidity, and a finely polished structure, enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasant hint of white grapefruit bitterness.
