Bright rose colour and a lovely red tone give a first impression of brilliance. Aromas of red fruits such as red currants, pomegranate, floral aromas of roses and violets, and a hint of spicy aromas of cinnamon and earthiness. Gentle on the palate, dry but with a faintly perceptible fruity sweetness. Acidity is mild; the palate is juicy with concentration. Made using the saignée method and fermented in oak, the wine is an exemplary blend of both fruitiness and complexity.
