Intense, gleaming purple red. The nose is powerful and opulent, packed with red fruit, fresh grape and the fragrance of the garrigue. Beautifully mouth-filling, with tannins which can almost be qualified as ‘sweet’ that are so characteristic of this terroir. Notes of cherry, some redcurrant and the freshness of aniseed and menthol complete the palette of this Minervois that possesses all the elegance of the appellation, but whose powerful personality makes a big impression.
