Swiveling the glass, one can perceive a perfect balance in this red wine, as it does not stand out watery or syrupy or liqueur-like on the walls of the glass. This varietal French wine flatters the glass with wonderfully expressive notes of blackberries, blueberries, black currants and mulberries. These are joined by hints of roasted almond, toasted hazelnut and walnut.
