Brownish color, hints of vegetal even herbaceous undertones in the nose, supple, certainly full of finesse but lacking beauty and class for its class! Picked too early.

Ripe, sweet fruit to smell; nicely balanced in its slightly old-fashioned style; elegant and scented, but without the ripeness of fruit that is currently fashionable; complex, aromatic, mineral, with the fruit there, but a bit firm in texture; will need plenty of time to soften. 2017–27+.

Fresh red fruits. Elegant and refined style, not a blockbuster, but a fine wine, soft and deep.
