 Evolution of the 2009 vintage by Nicolas Delacressonniere, Vineyard Manager  

Deep purple in colour with attractive violet tints.

On the nose, very fine notes of wood, toast and spices are enhanced by powerful perfumes of black fruits, produced by the excellent maturity of this vintage.

In the mouth the attack is frank with a fleshy structure which continues in length thanks to the ripe, silky tannins which give a certain volume and the sweetness is still very present. It is wellbalanced which is sign of a great wine. A little patience before it is ready and able to be appreciated.
