Bright ruby red in colour. On opening, the nose is striking for the originality of its fresh, delicate aromas, in a mix of red fruit such as redcurrant and grenadine with soft spices. The palate is fresh, with fine, discreet and well-integrated tannins. 2017 offers us a slightly more intense wine than in 2016, whilst maintaining its delicious, easy-drinking and highly original quality.
