Deep purple red, with opulent black fruit on the nose and finely spicy notes that evolve to lovely aromas of truffle and black olive tapenade. Smooth, well balanced first palate with notes of boxwood and black fruit leading to the exceptional freshness of peppermint and superb tension on the finish. With its polish and elegance, this wine perfectly expresses the atypical terroir of the vineyards at altitude of La Livinière.
