Sunday, March 6, 2011 - Almost pale ruby colour with garnet rim.
The nose is explosive (when I 've just opened the bottle, the room was full of aromas from it) but so delicate with dried roses, raspberry, truffel, some dried fruits, humus. It has deepness with an amazing impression of volume and purity. I was quiet hypnotized by these nose.
The mouth has medium body with a velvety mouthfeel. The acidity is important but not aggresive at all. Everything is in balance and again the impression of purity and refinement is really impressive. The wine finish has a superlative length with aromas of dried roses and red berries coming again and again in the mouth.
Note that after one hour the wine was fadding away and the delicate roses notes was replaced by leather, animals notes.
