Nose

Scent of mint leaves with irresistible violets perfume so typical of this area.

Palate

The marginal climate of its latitude brings a contrasting racy nerve and energizing freshness to the wine, while the ripe blueberry and bramble fruit contribute with upfront charm and generosity to the lush, textural palate. Wild herbs and green mint meet the violets perfume so typical of this site, and with a serious underlying blackness of graphite-like, stony, slatey power. Always an intellectual charmer. This vintage shows a riper, smoother and texturally rich style compared to the previous two vintages.
