Herbal notes of menthol, garrigue and blackcurrant leaf are upfront on the bouquet of this wine, supported by red forest-berry fruits. Medium in weight and body, it offers fine yet present tannins that frame the red currant, strawberry and rhubarb fruit. Hints of sous bois and spicy oak dance on the earthy finish. Drink now–2023.
