Aged 16 months in French Oak
Blood red with violet reflections, very dark, and concentrated in the core. The nose indicates the experience, which is impressively discharged as aromatic fireworks. The scent of fully ripe forest berries, truffles, crushed minerals, and peat presents itself as a very finely interwoven unit. A whole marketplace of forest fruits and blackberries is shown on the palate. Three-dimensional ripe pomaceous fruit, and with the elegance of a top Burgundy, the play of fruit is accompanied by aromas of freshly cut precious woods, Darjeeling, currants, and melted chocolate. Both the impressive minerality and tannins' play couldn't be more perfectly integrated, confirm its breed and class. The expressive ripe fruit, the architectural structure, and the profound complexity can be seen once again in the infinite finale.
