Saturated ruby-red. Blackberry, blueberry, brown spices and iron on the expressive nose. Fat and silky, with noteworthy volume. Plenty of wine here. Finishes with suave tannins and sweet oak notes. This should evolve relatively quickly.

Quite refined and almost edgy in its delivery with expressive aromas of lush pinot fruit and intense minerality (they don't call it PerriŠres for nothing). Despite the elegance, this is by no means light as there is solid intensity, structure and density of extract plus good length. A very fine PerriŠres.
