Deep, almost black in colour. Rich, ripe aromas of crushed strawberry, blackberry and prune on the nose. The smoothness of the palate almost surprises with the suppleness of its tannins. Red fruit, strawberry again but also wild cherry, mingles with aniseed and peppermint. A magnificent Minervois, succulent and full of personality, far from the stereotypes of the appellation, which punches well above its weight.
