Tasting Notes

Pinot noir quite often reveals fresh aromas of black currant, red berries and some leathery notes. It is rarely tannic on the palate however it can be very dense. This wine's robe is a thick and deep ruby color with violet tints. It is at once, brilliant and limpid. Its nose, both intense and complex alike, unveils great concentration, red berry aromas and a touch of vanilla. The attack on the palate is strong. It is composed of well-ripened and silky tannins as well as dense matter. Ample and well-balanced, it lasts a long time on the finish. Notes of vanilla and discrete spices come to the fore underscored by red berries.
