Comments about Wine-tasting :

Purple dress. Deep and captivating nose the aromas of which fond of red berries and black grow rich of a mineral and spicy dimension(size). In mouth scale, average power, dissolve(fade out), but especially freshness. Attractive final on a peppered register. Balanced well, built on rather fine tannins, this Côte du Roussillon village is made a success well.
