The Somelier's Note
The notes of fresh leather, cooked prune, blackberry jam and blackcurrant emphasize the characteristics of the predominant grape varieties. The candied consistency of the attack offers a particularly kirschée tasting. In the middle of the mouth we find notes of candied fruit, black cherry, bitter orange peel and candied date.A delicately aniseed and licorice tannin accompanies the tasting until the silky and persistent finish.
