  • Tasting notes
    The color of this second vintage is still intense, deep & dark. Regarding the nose, we feel the spice with cinnamon/liquorice, the freshness with mint/cedar wood, the earth with leather/humus, the mineral with graphite/lead pencil and red fruit with cherry/black current. The palate offers a long and polished tannic structure, a myriad of refreshing, fruity and mineral notes as peony, seaweed, wild black raspberryand graphite. A superb balance between minerality/acidity and sweetness/alcohol. This wine will perfectly pair with a roasted pigeon or a braised local beef short rib.
