In keeping with the brand's overall style, this is another ripe and lush offering from Gérard Bertrand. The bouquet floods the nostrils with intense notes of dark berries and cherry, all soaked with vanilla cream and sweet oak accents. The fruit takes center stage on the palate, but it's backed by a sweet spice flavor and tea-like astringency that lingers though the finish.
