Brilliant and gleaming cherry red. The nose is generous and very similar to the superb 2014 vintage, with ripe fruit, forest floor, truffle and mint that mingle in great harmony. In the mouth it is forthright with silky tannins, accompanied by aromas of blueberry, spices and lovely chocolatey notes. A supremely vertical wine with a fresh, mineral finish marked by hints of citrus. A great wine from a grand terroir.
