The nose is very expressive. Notes of eucalyptus, mint and liquorice dominate initially and are slowly replaced by cinnamon and juniper in a perfect harmony. The mouth, first very fresh, tightens a bit. The sensation of perfect balance between fineness of the tannins, red fruits and spices give this wine a character and a personality that is directly connected to its biodynamic origin.
