"Ruby red with light purple reflections. Notes of liquorice and linden flowers. Aeration I find red berries. Juicy, refreshing appetizer. The tannic structure is revealed fairly quickly and presents a surprisingly fine grain. The tannins are silky and in synthesis with a slightly crunchy acidity. A wine which will certainly gain even more fruity intensity at the end of the palate but which is basically already accessible. A great success in an extremely difficult vintage. Respect." - Yves Beck
