Elegance would be the word that best describes this wine. Its color is a very deep red. The nose, at first reserved, opens up softly and slowly. Notes of minerals are followed by red berries, then an earthy whiff dominated by an aroma of fresh ground coffee beans. Before you know it the wine charms you with all of its incredible complexity. The mouth is silky. The treatment of this vintage’s special tannins renders them astonishingly suave. Their freshness carries them along eventually towards an unending length on the palate.
