M. Chapoutier Chrysopee Rouge 2018

Appearance: crimson hue with bluish tints.
 
Nose:

the nose is initially dominated by black fruit, blueberry and graphite notes, and then opens onto hints of spices and violet.

 
Palate:

the attack is full, with a fresh, sophisticated palate of silky tannins. The blueberry notes make way for spicy notes that linger on a long-lasting salty finish with a hint of iodine. Great finesse and purity.
