Nose

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

Palate

The marginal climate of its latitude brings a racy nerve and energizing freshness, further accentuated by a cooler vintage. A wine of contrasts. Bright and juicy blueberry charm meets a wild structure with gravelly, chalky power. Ripe fig, wild herbs, mint leaves and meet the irresistible violets perfume so typical of this area. Gritty, mineral, stony and so linear yet so texturally rich and with a strong mineral graphite backbone. A gorgeous combination of elegance, freshness, power and perfume. An intellectual charmer.
