Tasting notes: Aromas typical of the ‘garrigue’ are the first to emerge in the glass, combined with aromas of roasting and red meat. Concentrated, powerful and smooth on the palate, with a freshness characteristic of the vintage. We find the same aromas as those discovered on the nose, along with notes of blackberry liqueur. There is a lovely freshness on the finish, with persistent dark berry flavours.
