Deep inky black with violet reflections. The 2021 vintage offers us a wine that is powerful but very well balanced, with a nose of distinct black berry fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry…), with notes of chocolate and spices such as dill and black pepper. Superb tension in the mouth which perfectly counterbalances the maturity of the aromas. Mocha, red fruit, peat and peppery notes mingle on the palate which is smooth, full and dense, with well-integrated tannins. The lightly oaky finish gives us notes of vanilla and coconut. This is a Marselan that will surprise both novices and wine experts alike.
