Rounded nose, ripe and sweet – and on palate too. Soft ripe and supple and a bit alcoholic on finish. A lovely ripe finish – sunshine and garigues.
Deep black-red. Vague and unfocussed, but appetising. Juicy and chunky on the palate. Generous but without a lot of shaping finesse. Excellent raw materials, though.
Ready aromas. Very aromatic – from a liquorice and herb-scented core of black fruit, this really expands on the palate. Intense & very characteristic of the Languedoc.
