Lightish crimson. Pungent. Too sweet to refresh. Just the right side of overripe. Lots of luscious fruit here. But it has (just) enough vitality too. Hint of creamed coconut. A bit strict for a burgundy!

Dark red. Aromas of plum, redcurrant, dark chocolate and smoky oak. Quite sweet in the mouth, with an almost liqueur-like quality to the plum, kirsch, smoke and mineral flavors. Rich and powerful yet harmonious, with compelling sweetness and length on the aftertaste. Lay this one down or give it plenty of aeration.
