Tasting notes

Incredibly deep and concentrated in appearance and tinged with purple. Intensity reigns on the complex bouquet, where aromas of ripe fruits meld with delicate, sweet, spicy notes. This is an impressive wine, initially supple on the palate, yet swiftly gaining in richness and power. The appealing aromatic intensity is underpinned by delicate, silky tannins, while the accompanying freshness supports the wine as it evolves, only to culminate in an exceptionally long finish. Refined, powerful and well-balanced, Essence de Dourthe 2010 is a resounding success for this stunning vintage.
