The nose is generous, intense and refined, with very marked notes of small red fruits, especially wild strawberry. It carries suggestions of almond and redcurrant jelly. As the wine opens up, there are notes of lime and hawthorn blossom. Good weight on the palate. Initial impact is slightly acid, then red fruits are back to the fore with blackcurrants and redcurrants. The finish is delectable and delicately spiced. Delicious as an aperitif, it will accompany ideally a verrine of dried tomatoes in a herb tartar sauce, brochettes of prawns with basil and lime, and will be sensational accompanying a dessert of red berries, presented for example as a minestrone. Only 750 cases made.
